1-1.5 lb pickles or small cucumbers
1-3 garlic clove
1/2 - 2/3 tbsp fine ground salt
3-5 dill stalks


Wash the cucumbers, remove the tips, and cut lengthwise into 2 or 4 parts, then put them into a deep dish.

Cut the garlic cloves into thin slices, cut the dill stalks into small-to-medium parts, add to the cucumber.

Pour the salt on top, and stir well by hand to mix the salt and garlic evenly between the cucumber parts.

Then put everything in the dish into a plastic bag, press it to remove the air, and roll the end tightly,

Let sit for about 1 hour at room temperature.

Then, the cucumbers are ready to serve.


You can keep the leftovers in a refrigerator, or in a can with a lid.

You can add the vegetable oil-vinegar-sugar mix on your taste, this would provide a different flavor.
