Spicy Sweet Pickling Cucumber Salad

I joined Foodbuzz toward the end of last month and attempt to invest a little energy day by day on the site looking at what individual foodies are cooking. I discovered the present formula on Lighter and Local.com, a dynamite blog composed by a Bostonite who offsets profession and kitchen easily. The formula grabbed my attention since it sounded incredible, yet in addition since it contained ZERO SALT!

I didn’t have any pickling cukes in the house (we’d just made our own into pickles) yet I had some extra firm standard cucumbers from Saturday’s rancher’s market. lighterandlocalI hit the spice garden for certain chives (check) and dill (probably not). Our dill this season went south at an opportune time. Before sprouting it gazed nearly consumed upward and since the blossom it’s totally blurred away, similar to what might be compared to the plant realm. I didn’t want to make the trip to the store or standing by to restock at our CSA, so I chose to simply swear off it. And keeping in mind that I was busy, why not change the formula somewhat more?

The formula beneath varies a lot from the first. Notwithstanding dropping the dill, I traded rice vinegar in lieu of my present top pick: White Balsamic. White balsamic is a totally unexpected creature in comparison to customary (dim) balsamic vinegar. Light, sweet and fruity, it merges easily without overwhelming. Albeit delectable the principal night, by the following day the “pickles” were OUT OF THIS WORLD. So help yourself out and let these terrible young men marinate for the time being.

Yields 4 servings.
