If the key word is "pickles" meaning vinegar then the above suggestions are great. But if you mean "simple", you can make Japanese -style pickles very simply. Remove seeds from an English cucumber, or just use Asian (slender) cucumbers. Slice thinly. Sprinkle with 1 T salt. Let sit about 10 minutes. Rinse, and squeeze the liquid from the cucumbers. Done.
Works with Napa cabbage too.
