Quick Fridge Pickles

I've had a busy couple of weeks and have a backlog of posts to catch up to. For now, here's a quick little recipe for some quick pickles.

These babies are crunchy and spicy. Make them now and you can enjoy them tomorrow!

I'm totally making these too. Pickles & onions are always so yummy at your house. Nice to know that this is so easy too.

Thanks, m2! I want to try making a small batch of hot pickles with some of that yummy hot pepper vinegar you gave me.

Perhaps I should re-title this post as Quick Fridge Pickles for Sandy. :D

I have a weakness for pickles, too. There are only about 5 little pickles left in the quart jar. I think I ate most of them myself.
