If you're looking for a fresh, easy and no-fuss snack recipe for these crazy back-to-school weeks, you've found it! These easy homemade pickles put any store-bought variety to SHAME and are easier than pie to make (trust us).
These crispy, juicy and oh-so-flavorful pickle slices take just 10 minutes to assemble and about a week to pickle. Yes, we know that's a long time to let these delicious bites sit. But the longer they sit, the more juicy pickle flavor they have. The end result is well worth the wait!
Serves about 6
3 cups sliced mini cucumbers
2/3 cup sugar
1 medium onion, sliced
1 yellow pepper, sliced
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper
In a medium size saucepan, heat sugar, salt and pepper and vinegar over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat.
Mix cucumbers, onion and pepper. Pour vinegar mixture over the vegetables and toss with salt and pepper. Pour mixture into 2 sterile pint-size Mason jars and refrigerate for 1 week, or until tangy and crisp.
