Coriander & Lemon Pickled Sliced Cucumbers Recipe

Background Info

I created this pickled cucumber recipe when we had run out of dill so I decided to use coriander instead and since we had plenty of lemons in season at the same time it seemed like a good match - yes it was!

Recipe Info

Prep Time
20 mins
Cook Time
Wait about a week before eating
Serves or Units
Makes 2 x 1 litre (quart) jars


3 x Cucumbers medium sized sliced
1 Cup Lemon juice (about 2 x small lemons)
2 Cup Plain white vinegar
1 Cup Water
1 Tablespoon Salt (fine sea salt or pickling salt is best)
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Handful Fresh chopped coriander
4 x Bay leaves


  1. This method of pickling does not require heating (ie) it's cold pickled.
  2. Pack the sliced cucumbers into jars and push a few bay leaves into each.
  3. Place the rest of the ingredients into a container or jug and stir well to dissolve the salt/sugar.
  4. Pour the pickling mix over the cucumbers making sure they are fully covered. Place the lids on.
  5. Store the pickled cucumbers in the fridge and wait for about 7-10 days before eating.

These coriander and lemon pickled cucumbers should last several months or more.

They are surprisingly tasty! I must admit being a little hesitant at first to use the herb coriander as it can be a little overpowering but matched with the lemon and other ingredients it works awesomely. 

I have also shared this recipe on our forum here if you'd like to chat over there you're most welcome.

These sliced pickled cucumbers are really easy to make especially since you don't even need to heat up or steep the pickling mix. 

The coriander and lemon with the bay leaf gives the pickles a refreshing flavour and even if you're not a "coriander person" it's worth a try because the taste may surprise you!  

Try these pickles on sandwiches, burgers, salads, Asian food, Indian curry, or even whizzed up then mixed with cream cheese to make an amazing dip.
