Quick Dill Pickles 

So I have to admit, this might be one of my favorite “easy” recipes on the planet. It’s seriously 4 ingredients, just a few hours, and people LOVE them!  I have had multiple girl friends ask for me to make the pickles for our get togethers, and I always say yes! 
Seriously – worth the 5-10 minutes of effort!


8-10 small cucumbers (or 1-1.5 English cucumbers)
3 teaspoons kosher salt
1-3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill (you can use dried dill if needed)
1/2 cup white vinegar 

(Using a mandolin if available), slice your cucumber very thinly. (1/8 inch as an example). 

Place them in a lidded jar (I used 2 old spaghetti jars that I also use for spaghetti stock.) 

Add the salt, dill, and vinegar.  

Close the lid and shake. (Note: the liquid level will be very low, but will increase over time)

Place the jar in the fridge and let it sit for a few hours, shaking a few times.  Ideally, they should set for about 6-8 hours, but can be eaten earlier. 

(Will keep for 3 weeks…. if they don’t get eaten first!)
