How to Make Your Own Pickled Cucumbers

May 25, 2022

Here’s how to make pickled cucumbers at home! One of my favorites to add to salads, on sandwiches and snack on. These are easy to make, full of flavor and take 5 minutes to prep.

I am HOOKED on making these pickled cucumbers. They are my absolute favorite to add into salads, onto my bagels with lox (so good) and they are delicious even just for snacking.

This recipe was inspired by our obsession with pickles and how we go to the farmer’s market as often as we can to stock up. But sometimes with two kids – that just isn’t as realistic as we hope. So we decided to start making our own. And my 3 year old is also obsessed so we are all snacking on these every single day. They only take about 72 hours to prime in flavor but it takes 5 minutes to prep. So while that sounds like a long time to get the cucumbers perfectly pickled, it is minimal effort to prep.

I cannot wait to hear what you think of this!! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram and Tiktok if you try it.

FAQs about making your own pickled cucumbers:

  • How long does it take for cucumbers to become pickled? It takes a solid 72 hours to get them prime pickled form. But you can of course eat after a day or so – but the longer the better!
  • What kind of cucumbers do you use for these? I buy mini seedless cucumbers from the store to make these. One of my kids favorite to snack on and dip in hummus too, so we always have them on hand.
  • How long do these pickled cucumbers last? They stay good for a couple months in the fridge. But we go through them pretty quickly.
