Quick and Easy Pickled Zucchini

A Few Words…

Do you have an abundance of zucchini from your garden or the market?

I enjoy baking and using zucchini in different recipes. I’m always looking for something new and saw this recipe posted in my local newspaper (The Montreal Gazette). I have to admit, I was a little skeptical. I never heard of pickling zucchini but, what did I have to lose?

Seriously, this recipe is ridiculously easy and took me about 5-10 minutes from start to finish. I made it almost 2 weeks ago and it’s still delicious!

This is great to put in a salad, as a side dish, I even had it for a snack!

Have you ever pickled zucchini or other vegetables?
I’d love to hear about it!
