These no carb pickles are so tasty, that it’s unlikely many of them will actually make it to storage. But, if you have any leftovers, they’ll last for at least 2 weeks in the fridge.


Different types of salt yield different low carb sweet pickles. In this recipe, I am using Kosher salt, which is my “standard” for pickling.

You can try and make these keto sweet pickles with table salt if you don’t have Kosher salt. Just use 3/4 teaspoons instead of a full one.

Choosing The Right Cucumbers

These keto dill pickles can be made from any sort of cucumber, but we prefer to use English cucumbers.

I traveled to many countries and noticed that in some, the cucumbers are very different from what we have in America.

There are so many sorts and sizes of cucumbers, and their taste also differs a lot. But still, for this keto pickles recipe- you can use any cucumber you like or have at hand.

Serve Them With These Dishes

Keto homemade pickles can be served as a side dish or a condiment to many keto-friendly dishes. Here are some of our favorites:

Keto Chicken Nuggets– These nuggets look and taste as if they came from a real fast food restaurant, but they are MUCH lower in carbs and calories.

Keto Ham Steak– this recipe is very good. I make ham steaks on regular basis, and these keto refrigerator pickles go well with them.

Your Questions Answered

Can I Use Dried Dill Instead?

I found that fresh dill works best in this recipe, however if you don’t have any on hand, you can definitely use dried dill.

I would recommend using 1 tablespoon of dried dill for this recipe.

Can I Reuse The Brine?

Yes, you can reuse the brine for your next batch of keto pickles, but you probably won’t notice much of a difference in flavor.
