• Fresh Cucumber Pickles! Posted on October 13, 2013


    Fresh Cucumber Pickles! This recipe is great! It's easy, quick and very tasty. It also goes well with any grilled meat, roast chicken or on its own as a side dish.

    Cut a large cucumber into half lengthwise, remove the soft core and cut into very thin slices. Mix with about 1 tsp salt and leave it for a while and drain off the liquid. Then make the pickling mix with 1/2 lemon juice, 1 tbsp of Chingkiang black vinegar, 1 - 2 tbsp light soy to taste, enough sugar to taste, 1 chopped garlic clove, 1 red chili sliced and a little sesame oil. Mix with cucumber and leave to absorb the flavor for about 20 minutes. Ready to eat. Nice with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds too.

    If you like a mixed vegetable pickle you can add radish (common radish), mooli or carrot.

    The thicker cut the vegetable the longer you need to pickle the vegetable.

    There may be quite a bit of picking juice. It's very tasty to use as dressing for other salad or use it as a sweet and sour sauce. How easy was that?
