Easy Bread & Butter Zucchini Pickles

I'm not a huge fan of pickles. At least not on regular basis, but on our last vacation I had a veggie burger that was topped with some that I absolutely fell in love with. They tasted somewhat like the sweet pickles I grew up with, but they weren't made out of cucumbers. So, once we got home, I quickly got to work trying to figure out how to make some easy Bread & Butter Zucchini pickles of my own.

No More Cucumbers.. Bring On The Zucchini


When I ordered my veggie burger on vacation, I didn't notice the description of the pickles. I was pleasantly surprised at the taste, but when I actually looked at what the pickles were, I couldn't believe it was zucchini's... and that I had never thought of pickling them before myself.

Sliced zucchini in a bowl with onions and ice.

So Simple To Make


I grew up canning pickles with my grandmother. We would have baskets of cucumbers from my grandfathers garden, so pickles and relishes were always something we made.

I thought about this while putting together this recipe, but I knew I didn't want to spend all day in the kitchen. I wasn't sure if they were going to work in the first place, so a smaller, refrigerator batch was going to be the way to go.

To say these are easy to make is understatement.

I made this batch in one afternoon. Right after lunch I sliced the zucchini's and onions. I placed them in the refrigerator and by the time I was ready to start dinner, I was able to get the pickling juice made, cooled and poured over the zucchini mixture.

Voila. In just a little bit of time, I had the most delicious and easy bread & butter zucchini pickles I've ever had right in my fridge.

  7. I love that a condiment on a burger inspired you to create your own zucchini pickles! I'd totally try these, especially when neighbors have too many zucchini to consume :)

  15. These look delicious! Do the zucchini keep a crunch after being pickled? I've always had zucchini that was sort of mushy and a weird texture after being messed with - but hopefully these keep a decent crunch after going through the pickling process. Thank you for sharing!

  16. Hey Billy. They are a little bit softer than regular pickles, but not mushy at all. They won't have the crunch when you bite into them but they do hold together pretty well. Thanks for stopping by. If you make them, let me know how they turn out.
