Did you know July is National Pickle Month? We are READY to celebrate with 20 Pickle-rific recipes from the #BlogHealthy Community!
Five Minute Fresh Pickles from Gluten Hates Me // you need cucumbers. Any size will work but I like the extra crunch you get from small cucumbers. Give them a good rinse and then slice them in to rounds. The thickness of each round is your own preference.
Pickled Green Beans and Asparagus from Food Fash // Was anyone else’s Instagram feed filled with beefed up bloody marys this weekend? Every time I scrolled down, I was reminded how much I love bloody garnishes. Particularly pickled okra. But since I learned that okra is way out of season, I stuck to not-in-season-but-still-in-stock green beans and asparagus.
Quick Pickled Radishes from Modern Hippie Habits // One of my favorite things are the various radishes that come every color under the sun, and add a fresh, fun bit of spice to fall dishes. Radishes are great on their own, but I love adding a little extra kick, and in 30 minutes you can too! Enter my Quick Pickled Radishes!
Cheeseburger Chopped Salad with Dill Pickle Vinaigrette from How Sweet Eats // I’m going to tell you about a cheeseburger salad and hope you don’t freak. Please don’t freak! It’s really oh-so good. And when I tell you what goes on this crazy cheeseburger salad? I’m hoping you’ll be into it. I am SO into it.
Dill Pickle Baked French Fries from Sinful Nutrition // Dill Pickle Baked French Fries Recipe — A healthy french fry for pickle lovers! No added oils or fats, and baked to crispy perfection.
Classic Vegan Pickle Potato Salad from spabettie // Classic Vegan Potato Salad – just like mom used to make, with pickle – a picnic favorite gets a plant based update that tastes just like the original!
Quick Pickled Onions from Eating Bird Food // Quick pickled onions made from only five ingredients and made in only one hour! These are great for adding fun color and flavor to a wide variety of meals — especially salads.
Quick Pickled Cabbage from Edible Perspective // I tried a few different methods of ingredient mix-ins for this recipe and landed on something pretty basic, but with a few flavor infusions to take this quick pickled cabbage to the next level.
Quick Pickled Carrots with Garlic and Dill from Alysa Bajenaru, the Inspired RD // I whipped these up in about 10 minutes, stuck them in the refrigerator, and came back 24 hours later to crispy deliciousness. The kids love them too!
Spicy Pickled Cucumbers and Peppers from Prevention RD // I was also happy with the variety of the cucumber and pepper combo — something mild, medium, and hot to balance the other ingredients out perfectly. Now, I just need to make more to last through the winter and to keep my sandwiches from being anything but boring.
Refrigerator Zucchini Pickles from Iowa Girl Eats // Refrigerator Zucchini Pickles are no-heat nor canning-required! Make in just 10 minutes with your garden bounty plus kitchen staples.
a great idea to celebrate family recipes like in this post Pickled Asparagus from Mollie’s Sprinkles of Life // My Grandma Lyon followed a recipe for pickled green beans that I just loved. I still have a hand-written copy of her special recipe! A couple years ago I decided to try the recipe using asparagus instead of the standard green beans. They turned out great!
Spicy Baked ‘Fried’ Pickles with Sriracha Ranch Dip from Savor the Thyme // A few years ago, I was first exposed to fried pickles. Since then, three out of the four members of this family have ordered fried pickles whenever we see them on a menu. Since I had a craving the other day, I decided to finally make my own version. I choose to use pickles spears rather than the traditional chip style. I also decided to spice things up by adding Sriracha sauce to ranch dressing. If you want the traditional fried pickle chips style, just cut down the baking time.
Spicy Korean Cucumber Kimchi Refrigerator Pickles from Jeanette’s Healthy Living // These Spicy Korean Cucumber Kimchi Refrigerator Pickles are a delicious way to enjoy fresh kirby cucumbers this summer. Each summer, I look forward to our local farmer’s market. Kirby cucumbers are one of the items I pick up when I see them. Farm fresh kirby cucumbers are firm, crunchy and make amazing kimchi pickles.
Easy Refrigerator Pickled Beets from Zen and Spice // Fresh beets are abundant at the grocery store and farmer’s markets this time of year. These pickled beets will last for weeks in the fridge and taste delicious!
Bread and Butter Pickles from Bran Appetit // pickling things is the way to go if you want to start canning. It doesn’t take much time compared to other things (jams, tomato sauce) and you still end up with fresh, homemade goods to enjoy this winter.
Pickled Carrots and Jalapenos from Healing and Eating // Instead of chips and dip, quick pickled carrots and jalapeños are an easy snack food, that’s paleo friendly. You can make it ahead of time in bulk, so you can enjoy your party, instead of slaving away in the kitchen. This recipe is pretty spicy, even though I only used one jalapeño, so if spicy food isn’t for you, you might to seriously reduce the amount of chopped jalapeños. The carrots are the best part anyway. I love pickled carrots!
Pickled Swiss Chard Stems from Britt’s Blurbs // Pickled swiss chard stems are a great way to use up the full Swiss Chard plant and a fun change from serving pickles in the summer!
Fried Pickle Pizza from Badger Girl Learns to Cook // This pizza is light, refreshing, and innovative. Oh, and it’s EASY. Like really easy. Like throw together while sipping a glass of wine and chatting with friends EASY. And it’s novel. How many people have served you a pickle pizza?
Quick Pickled Vegetables from gingermantra // One of the things I’ve really grown to love is pickled vegetables. They are a great alternative to a big calorie packed snack and super simple to make. Depending on how many batches of this you make you can have enough to last you for a week.
