What kind of pickle on a Cubano?

I think the pickle and the pork make the sandwich. What kind of pickle. It isn't really dill. Any recipes?

        Yeah, byrd...I live in Florida and partake of some awesome Cuban sandwiches from Fernandez the Bull here in Naples every now and then...I'm no expert but I swear they are dills!

        They're typically sliced longwise.

          Yes, very thin slices lengthwise, that's how Fernandez does them! Gawd, now I need to make a "Cuban run" from work this week...I've had too many conversations about Cuban sandwiches this week!
