Quick refrigerator pickles are summer’s perfect snack food. Nibble on these salty, slightly crisp zucchini pickles with a glass of wine in the late afternoon, after a long day outside. Snack on them as the sun goes down, and take note of how the color matches the waning daylight sky.
Their golden color comes from turmeric, the spice on everyone’s mind because of it’s anti-inflammatory properties. As a cook, I also love the golden color it gives to dishes. It has a slightly bitter flavor and a pleasant ginger-citrus aroma. But these pickles…well, they just taste like summer.
