Garlic Dill Pickles Free PD Recipe

Are you a pickle lover? Protective Diet’s refrigerator pickles are low in sodium and free of MSG. I eliminated the typical sugar and corn syrup to provide you with a low calorie crunchy snack. These are quick to prep and made without any heat. Serve them at your next BBQ or pack them up on a picnic. I keep a jar of these flavorful pickles in my refrigerator door at all times.

  1. These are easy to make and oh so delicious! I could not find dill seeds, but they still turned out great. Pickle spears were one of my favorites and these are even better than the ones I remember eating. Highly recommend!

  2. Loved these pickles. I don’t like my pickles very sweet, so I only added a few drops of stevia. My husband is not a huge fan of cucumbers but he couldn’t stop eating these! Thanks Julie for another great recipe.

  3. Oh My Goodness!!! These are the best thing since sliced bread!
    You have all raved about these and I thought to myself come on people they’re just pickles.
    OH NO…….. they are not just pickles!
    If you like pickles you HAVE to make these as soon as possible. I couldn’t stop eating them and was feeling like I was eating too many but then realized it was only 1 cucumber.

    I will definitely change some things when I make more (my husband is out getting me some more organic cucumbers as I type) I will use a larger jar that has a wide mouth because the first one I used was too small and I had to work to hard to get the pickles out (didn’t want to waste the juice since I knew I was making some more right away).
    I will also be on the look out for one of those fancy cutters and I will most definitely be doubling if not tripling the recipe from now on!

    Lucky for me my husband doesn’t like them which means I get them all to myself. 🙂

    Thanks Julie for this GREAT recipe!

  4. I keep a batch of these and the non-spicy ones in the fridge to add to salads, wraps, or just to eat for a snack. I could eat a whole jar of claussen pickles before I went PD and I was afraid these would be more like some canned pickles that I have tried that were mushy, but nope, these are crispy and stay crispy all week…up to two weeks for me if I leave them alone that long! lol Plus you can reuse the mix and add more cucumbers in!

  5. These are so, so good! A great way to use up cucumbers during the height of garden season. We used up lots from our CSA share. We did slices and spears, some spicy, some regular. Any way you try it, they are all good and don’t last long. Great, healthy snack. I do want to try some without stevia, I think that would be a good option as well.

  6. I’ve never been a pickles fan, but for some reason, I really wanted to make these. I sure am glad I did; they’re amazing! My husband, who *does* love pickles, said that they’re the best he’s ever had! Time to make another jar!
