Did you know you can pickle almost anything?! I’m amazed and inspired by the current pickle craze that is going on; chefs and home cooks are realizing the amazing qualities of pickling. A pickled dish can be the perfect topping on a salad or an essential accompaniment to many meals. When I’m getting together with friends, I’m always the first to offer to bring a relish tray and I always include an assortment of the pickled items I have on hand. If your memories of pickles are the ones your grandma used to can and store away, it’s time to broaden your horizons!
Pickles can be made quickly and do not have to be canned (although I do can many types). You can prepare a quick pickle and place it in the fridge for a few days and then enjoy it a delish treat, such as this cauliflower. I love using cauliflower as it retains its amazing crisp crunch and has a great texture. Mixed with this smoky adobo pickling juice, you’re going to love this simple treat, just in time for spring!
