Refrigerator Dill Pickle Recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Tasting Notes: Dill and Garlic with a Slight Kick.
Pairs Well With: Cheddar Cheeseburger with Tomato Slices.

Dill pickles made refrigerator style are a staple topping or side dish for sandwiches and hamburgers. This recipe has a lighter vinegar flavor and lets the dill and garlic really come through.

To get the ingredients evenly distributed in the jar, roll the jar on its side after half of your cucumbers and spices are loaded. Since you will be packing the jar full of cucumbers, there will not be much space to shake the spice around once the brine is in it.
