Zucchini Refrigerator Pickles Recipe

Being a fan of almost anything pickled, I decided to try zucchini pickles. Even though I only planted 3 plants and 1 is not producing, I’m still finding we have plenty of zucchini.  I saw this recipe for zucchini pickles in my Cooking Light magazine and decided to give them a try.

I made these with one large-ish zebra striped zucchini.

  • 4 cups 1/8″ zucchini slices
  • 1 cup onion, sliced thinly
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 3/4 tsp Kosher salt

Bring the vinegar, sugar, red pepper, mustard seeds and salt to a boil and stir, then take off the heat.

Combine the zucchini, onion and garlic in a bowl and mix together. Put it all in a 1 quart jar or other container and pour the vinegar mix over it. Refrigerate 24 hours.

I really like the sweet and spicy combo but I wish there was a way to make the crispier. Still, a nice side dish for a change if you like pickled things.
