Asian Pickles


Summer time is my favorite time of the year to experiment with fruits and veggies and these Asian Pickles are a WINNER!

I adore lettuce wraps and at The Cheesecake Factory they serve these pickled cucumbers on the side and that is where the inspiration was born.

I played around with the differet flavors and after a few tweeks and actual measuring I have a recipe worthy or sharing!

I adore just your basic marinated cucumbers in vinegar which is a Southern staple at ant summer meal  so, I am introducing you to this is a “gourmet” Asian version.

It will be ther perfect addition to your next meal!

1/4 c vegetable oil

1/3 c rice wine vinegar

1 T low sodium soy sauce

1 t honey

1 t srircha

1 t seaseme oil

1 t toasted sesame seeds

Slice veggies and set to the side. Make marinade and pour over top. Allow to marinate at least 4 hours.

This marinade doubles and triples beautifully although I personally do not think you will want to double or triple the sesame seeds. They go a long way!!
