Raw Balsamic Zucchini “Pickles”Posted: June 28, 2011
I really, really hate pickles. I hate them so much that I legitimately worry about my future pregnancy cravings.
Before you even ask, I have a LONG time before that even comes into play!
That’s not to say that during certain times of the month (ahem), there’s nothing I want more than a briny, salty and crunchy snack.
Enter my new favorite summer munchie: raw balsamic zucchini “pickles.”
All of the tang with none of the actual pickle-ness? (And none of the babies, thank you very much?) I’m in love!
Raw Balsamic Zucchini “Pickles”
Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free
Makes two servings
- 1 large zucchini
- 1/8 cup light balsamic dressing (such as Newman’s Own)
- Sprinkle of sea salt
- Slice zucchini in half, then into slim spears.
- In a shallow dish, arrange zucchini slivers and drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle salt over the top, cover and allow to marinate overnight (or longer).
- Snack your face off (side of ice cream optional)
I wonder what would come of a zucchini relish…
Do you ever get random cravings for foods you know you dislike? Do you go with it or try to find an alternative?
