I don't count them as vegetables. They're high in sodium so if you have too much then you're over for sodium so I only use them as conidments as well.

It's best to count them as a condiment, like ketchup. They're both made with veggies, but in order to eat enough to get the benefit of a veggie serving, you would get WAY too much salt and/or sugar to be healthy. A serving of cucumber slices is a cup, and a cup of pickles would have almost a whole day's sodium (more than a whole day's if you're supposed to be limiting it.) If you like pickles, have a slice or two on your sandwich, but don't count on them to replace fresh vegetables.

Do you count pickles as a fruit/vegetable?
