If you Google "quick pickles", you'll find a million different versions and a million different opinions about them. I'm going to say though that my quick pickles are literally the quickest and easiest you will find, so don't bother looking it up on Google. Seriously, just trust me. Or, if you ended up here from Googling "quick pickles", just stay here. Don't go anywhere. Still here? Good.
My version of quick pickles is one I've eaten my whole life, compliments of my Dad, and I honestly love it. As far as it being a true pickle though, it's a big fat faker. But does it taste great, and give you a pickly zing? Yes it does. Well then, alright. Let's move on.
This is a super-duper, very loose recipe that usually just has me cutting, pouring, and eye-balling everything.
Don't sweat this recipe! As soon as you start worrying about it, you've defeated the purpose!
My Dad use to make this a lot when I was growing up, and I really loved it. I was also the youngest of a huge family, and do you think my Dad fussed around with pickles with a small army of kids and young adults in the house? No. No, he would not. So don't fuss!
If you want to add some fresh or dried herbs like dill, garlic, or onions, do it. It's all you man, it's your quick pickle!
I eat these bad boys on their own, I'll put them on top of a veggie salad, or I'll toss them with sweet bell peppers and leftover chicken for a quick lunch. Then, when they're gone, I drink the vinegar out of the jar. For real. It makes my face pucker a bit, my gut feels a little wacky, but it's how I roll.
