Dilled Zucchini Slices

Dilled Zucchini Slices created by Chabear01

This is from a collection of Sheryl Arnolds recipes. Sheryl was not just a good cook, she had her own catering business and owned The Lunch Bucket, a popular Restaraunt here in the Sacramento Area back in the day. I use my mandolin to slice the zucchini, which makes short work of slicing them. The cooking time includes curing time.

    I did not have Cidar Vinegar and no time to run to the store so I substituted Pomegranate infused red wine vinegar. OMG! This is wonderful. I regret the growing season is over with as I had zucchini squash earlier in the season and cooked the majority of it stuffed. Now I have found a new use for my one of my favorite squashs.

    These are great, and it's a good way to use up all that zucchini. I actually cut the zucchini into spears instead of slices and it works well. They have a slightly different texture than a cucmber pickle, but I think the flavor is pretty similar, and some like them more. Definately best if you let them sit for a couple weeks, especially if you make spears as opposed to thin slices.
