  • mason jars

  • 1-2 cucumbers sliced into rounds or spears
  • ½ onion sliced into half moons
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled
  • 2 large sprigs of dill
  • 3 cups water
  • ¾ cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tbs sugar


  • Place sliced cucumbers, onions, garlic and dill into a quart size mason jar, or other container.
  • Combine water, vinegar, sugar, and salt into a medium saucepan and turn heat to medium-high.
  • Stir until sugar and salt is dissolved, remove from heat.
  • Pour the vinegar solution over the cucumbers, making sure they are covered, and seal with lids. Place in the refrigerator to cool and store.


To make Trim Healthy Mama compliant:
  • use 1 tablespoon Gentle Sweet or Truvia in place of the sugar. This will make your brine a little cloudy, but still completely good to eat.
