Does garlic in vinaigrette start to pickle?

I made a simple vinaigrette for green beans, with olive oil, lemon and sliced garlic, which I plan to use for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I put it in the refrigerator to keep it until tomorrow, but then read something saying that garlic starts to taste pickled after 24 hours. Has anyone experienced this, and is it really a problem? Thanks!

Hi there! While a simple vinaigrette (1/3 cup of vinegar, 1 cup of oil, and 1 teaspoon of minced garlic) stored in the refrigerator for 24 hours may result in a "pickled" garlic taste, your recipe doesn't sound like it has the right amounts of vinegar for this same "pickling" to occur, so I wouldn't be too worried about it. Happy Thanksgiving!

It has a half cup of olive oil and the juice of two good sized lemons. So pretty lemon-y.
