crunchy ginger-pickled cucumbers

I finally have a camera again! I’m so excited. So excited in fact, that I almost forgot to take a picture of this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe, Crunchy Ginger-Pickled Cucumbers. Maybe I’m just out of practice after a month of picture free posting. Or maybe it’s the fact that I was home from vacation in the states for exactly one day before I had to pack my bags again for a business trip. Yep, here I am, typing up this week’s post from a hotel room in Amsterdam.

But on my one day home I did manage to get in this week’s recipe. After a week of feasting on all my favorite foods in Chicago (why is it that we never miss the healthy stuff) I thought that Dorie’s light and easy side salad was just what the doctor ordered. I paired it with another Dorie recipe which has become a staple in my house, Quinoa, Fruit, and Nut Salad.

Dorie’s pickled cucumbers were incredibly easy (thank goodness because I don’t think that I could have handled a complicated one this week) and pretty quick too. My husband really enjoyed them and said that he would like to make them again. As for me, I maintain a general indifference to cucumbers, which this salad could not shake me out of. I neither love them nor hate them. Though I will say that this salad was far better than I expected. And pretty too!

    Hooray for your camera! I accidentally made the blueberry mascarpone roulade this week. Woops. I’ll do the cucumbers next week. I lo-o-ove the quinoa salad. I made that again last week, too. It’s my favorite breakfast of the moment.

  3. Yay! Camera’s back! Great post.

  4. Yay, it’s great that you’re reunited with your camera again! I think me and my camera are like strangers at the moment because I use it so rarely nowadays. Your cucumber pickle looks awesome and must’ve paired really well with that quinoa salad, I must try this combination sometime.

  5. Cheers to your new camera! These are definitely light and fresh. I wasn´t in the group when you made the quinoa salad, but it sound so good. Nice plate!

  6. Rose, you prepared two wonderfully looking salads – nice that you have a camera again. Posting from Amsterdam, I am jealous, I wish I was there right now!

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Yay for having a camera again 🙂 And hey, looks like we all needed a little break this week! Waving at you from Paris!

  8. Yay!!! So happy you have a camera again! I was glad to have an easy recipe this week,too! The heat wave we’re having is making it very difficult to be in the kitchen! Your salad looks great!
