Refrigerator Pickles

I am thrilled that several of my friends are now bloggers and have such cute, inspiring blogs. If you haven't done so already, check out Lois Pearl Designs. She has all kinds of great recipe and crafty ideas. One of the most recent recipes she's made are Refrigerator Pickles. What a great way to use up those fresh summer cucumbers. This makes a great side dish and as Erin points out this dish is even better the next day!

2-3 thinly sliced cucumbers
1 thinly sliced onion
1/3 c. water
1/3 c. vinegar
2 T. sugar

Heat water, vinegar and sugar on low and stir just until sugar is just dissolved. Pour the mixture over the cucumbers and onions and enjoy!


  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe Kathie! I'm so glad that you like it. We've been living off of refrigerator pickles all month. I'm going to be making your Zucchini Bread tonight! Mmmmm!

  2. Erin - Thank you! I was excited to try your recipe! It was super easy to make and so good!

  3. I think I'll try this minus the onions! I don't mind them cooked, but I'm not a fan of the texture raw... I know they're just crunchy like cucumbers but there's something weird I can't pinpoint!!


  4. Rosie - I am going to make the next batch without onions too. I love it with the onions but my preschooler does not. I'm making a batch just for him! I'm sure it will still be great! :)
