Two Minute Pickle
It’s a salad. It’s a snack. It’s the quickest pickle you’ll ever make.
5 Persian cucumbers (those are the little ones, not those big Zucchini looking things)
Juice of 1 lime
Zest of one lime
Pinch of Maldon salt (spend the extra money on Maldon or just use Kosher salt)
5 or 6 twists of freshly ground pepper
Sprinkle of Za’atr (optional)
Sprinkle of Sumac (optional)
1- Cut the cucumbers lengthwise into quarters and arrange on a plate. 2- Dump all that other shit on top of the cucumbers in the order listed above. 3- Now you have a pickle. It’s a miracle. It should take you longer to read this recipe than to make it. Go!
