Jars for "quick pickling"

Do I really need to use canning jars to quick pickle things? Or, can I just reuse jars like spaghetti sauce jars, salsa jars, etc...? I just want to quick pickle green beans, okra, asparagus, etc... The jars will be refrigerated.

If you're sealing them to store in the pantry, yes you need jars that can seal.

Thanks Amanda I clarified my post to explain that I am doing a quick pickle and they will be stored in the fridge.

If it is a quick pickle, stored in fridge, never intended to be shelf-stable, then you can use any container you want. Glass is best simply because it is less likely to release unpleasant flavors like plastic may, but plastic is okay too.
