Grandma’s No Cook Refrigerator Pickles. Sweet and tangy with a delightful celery accent.
Grandma’s no cook refrigerator pickles are easy, but you have to wait a few days to eat them.
One day when I stopped by my neighbor Diane’s house, she was in the middle of making No Cook Refrigerator Pickles. A few days later (after they aged) I tried them. Wow! De-LISH-ous! She gave me her recipe and I went home and made some.
The recipe is SO EASY and they keep indefinitely in the fridge. Not only that, but when you finish all the pickles, you can use the juice again to make another batch. Wowie!
Simple, simple, simple. Just 6 ingredients.
- Slice the cucumbers and onions.
- Put them in a large glass container with a lid.
- Mix the vinegar dressing and pour it over the veggies.
- Refrigerate for three or more days, turning the jar over every once in awhile.
Don is delighted. His mom used to make pickles like these, and he loves them. You will need some covered half-gallon jars or something to make and store them in.
What You Need
You will need a knife, cutting board, measuring cups and spoons and a large jar to store your pickles. But what you really want is a good dish to serve them. Am I right?
Use Other Veggies Too
The last time I made these pickles, I made some with green beans, too. You make them exactly the same, except you have to blanch the beans before you put them in the jar. Try it!

Put the pickles in a tightly covered jar or container in the refrigerator, turn the jar over periodically to mix the ingredients, and let age for 3 days or a week to enhance flavor.
