Refrigerator Pickles

July 5, 2011

I have too many cucumbers. Sometimes when I am confronted with this particular First World Problem, I make taziki sauce and serve it with falafel waffles. That’s another post for another time. 😉 Today, I’m making these refrigerator pickles. I’ve used this recipe before, and the result is lightly flavored pickle spears great for general snacking.
