I've never made pickles before (well....maybe 30 years ago and I don't remember how anymore!). I was looking up recipes for bread and butter pickles. It seems to be just like the "cucumber salad" that I make in the summer. Sliced cucumbers, onions, vinegar, sugar, and water. And some spices. Let them sit a day or so and then eat. But the bread and butter pickle recipes seem to be the same ingredients.... how can that be? Is cucumber salad actually bread and butter pickles???
