Garlic and Ginger Pickled Cucumbers - Fresh cucumbers quick pickled with garlic and ginger creates a lovely tangy lightly pickled flavor with a bit of an Asian twist.
Pickles bring back memories of summers from my childhood. It isn't that fresh pickles were readily available. Like I have said in the past, my Mom wasn't much into the whole cooking/domestic side of the game. No it is because, as a teenager, summer meant hanging out at the beach all day with your friends. Of course at some time during the day we would get hungry, but the girls didn't want to fill up on the Mexican food that was readily available. I mean literally, the restaurant was right on the boardwalk. Walking around a bathing suit tends to make you a bit conscious of the calories you are putting in your body. Although my taste buds craved rolled tacos and carne asada nachos, my bikini screamed at me to back away from that table ASAP!
