Honey Minted Refrigerator Pickles

Fresh cucumbers and mint are in abundance in many gardens during this time of year, so why not make some refreshing, mildly sweet pickles with a twist. These honey minted cucumbers are wonderful on their own, but would also taste great on burgers, sandwiches, and salads. Cucumbers provide skin-friendly minerals such as magnesium, silicon, and potassium, as well as hydrates and flushes out toxins. Mint and red onion are anti-inflammatories, and one of the many health benefits of apple cider vinegar is its natural antibiotic properties that improve skin, digestive and immunity health.
