So what do you do with all of that summer squash your neighbor keeps bringing you? Make these delicious Zucchini refrigerator pickles of course!

This delightful, and easy to prepare recipe makes a tasty side dish to almost any camping or picnic meal you might serve.

You will need 4 pint sized canning jars with lids or something equivalent, and it should keep in the refrigerator for about 4 weeks.

I like to use both dark and  light mustard seeds for color, but it’s not necessary.

Have some extra Jalapenos?  Try pickling them too!
