The quickles, short for quick pickles, in this recipe aren’t the only thing that comes together fast. The chickpea salad sandwich is a snap to whip up as well. Transform satiating chickpeas into a fulfilling vegetarian stuffed pita that is perfectly balanced with the crunch of easy homemade pickles.
Slice cucumbers. Combine vinegar, sugar and 2 tsp salt in a jar or bowl and whisk or shake until the sugar disappears. Add cucumber slices, and set aside and shake or stir occasionally for 15-20 minutes.
