Hey, y’all! My friend Tanya made these and brought them over to my house recently; needless to say, I ate the entire jar and immediately asked how to recreate them. To my surprise, only three ingredients were needed! I know y’all are going to love these same-day pickles!

Same Day Pickles With Only Three Ingredients

These pickles are ready in just a couple of hours; all you have to do is combine the ingredients in a mason jar, mix well, and allow them to get cold. The essential ingredient: Hendrickson’s Original Sweet Vinegar & Olive Oil Dressing, which is located near the non-refrigerated dressings at your local grocery store.

If you are similarly-located to myself, you can find it at Kroger and Walmart. That said, if you are unable to find it, you can order it several places online (including Amazon). It will be cheaper to purchase in store; thus, to save some money, check there first!

FAQ

How long will these pickles last?

These pickles are best enjoyed a couple hours after making them. That said, for optimal quality, you should enjoy them in a 2-3 day period.

Can you use the marinade more than once?

Yes, and I recommend that you do so to make it even more affordable. For best quality, use the marinade/same jar up to 3 times. That said, I find that two times is the sweet spot.

What type of cucumber should I use?

You should use the cucumber of your preference — they all work: American, Persian, English, etc. I used an American cucumber in this batch, but I actually prefer Persian cucumbers.
