Quick Pickle - Cucumbers and Onions


This is a recipe my Mom would make all summer long. It's a no hassle way to stay ahead of your cucumber plant. You aren't actually canning just marinating in vingar so you can add other veggies, herbs, and even leave out the agave or salt if it matches your diet better!
