Easy Refrigerator Dill Pickle Recipe (Keto Whole30 Paleo) – a quick, crunchy, and satisfying snack! These Easy Refrigerator Dill Pickles are simple to make and and full of garlicky, dill flavor.
This recipe is coming to you straight from my cookbook, Clean Eating for Weight Loss! Easy Refrigerator Dill Pickles is one of my favorite (and possibly easiest!) recipes to make and eat. When I’m trying to cut back on carbs and need a crunchy, salty snack, pickles are my go-to. My whole family loves pickles so they’re hard to keep around – but thankfully I discovered how easy they are to make so I can always have a stash on hand and even save a few bucks. And no hidden sugar or preservatives like you’ll find in store bought pickles!
What You’ll Need
One large English cucumber (or enough to fill a jar)
How to Make Refrigerator Dill Pickles
First slice the cucumber into spears (or slices or coins.)
To make the brine, add water, vinegar, salt, garlic, and dill to a large quart size mason jar. Shake it well to combine.
Add sliced cucumbers to the brine. Seal the jar tightly and refrigerate the pickles for at least 24 hours to set the flavor.
The Best Cucumbers for Refrigerator Dill Pickles
In my opinion, English cucumbers make the best pickles because they have few to no seeds, and tend to be firmer than regular cucumbers so they stay crispy and crunchy in the brine for several weeks. My personal favorite is to cut the English cucumbers into spears, but coins, slices, or halves are great too – whatever suits your fancy!
Easy Refrigerator Dill Pickles
These quick pickles are a true clean eating snack with simple ingredients and no added sugar, but huge on flavor! I love to pair them with some olives or a slice of raw cheddar when I have the munchies or need something to tide me over to my next meal. They are also a wonderful addition to burgers, wrapped in a slice of turkey, or as a quick summer side dish. These Easy Dill Pickles keep well for several weeks in the refrigerator, although they rarely last that long!
