Just as we approach gardening season these Easy Refrigerator Pickles are the perfect treat!  I originally shared this post in 2015; however, I thought it deserved to be shared again.

As part of our Garden Fresh Fridays series, I thought it was only fitting to start with one of my favorite foods, pickles.  I used to drink pickle juice straight from the jar.  I know…it grosses me out a little now too, but seriously as a kid it was SO delicious.  Yep…still a little grossed out by that now.

All last summer, I kept thinking that I really needed to make my own pickles but I just never seemed to get around to it.  Then, I stumbled on this recipe from Cooking Light for Easy Refrigerator Pickles.  These are so simple and really no canning experience needed.

These would be perfect for summer cookouts, I know we tend to grill out all summer long and imagining these topped on a juicy burger just has my mouth watering!

Keep in mind that these need to be in the fridge about 4 days before eating them, so this is one of those make ahead of time recipes by several days.  I enjoyed that I could make them the weekend before and just have them sitting there for the week until we were ready to dig in.  Then, you can store them in the fridge for several weeks after too.
