French Fridays with Dorie – Crunchy Ginger-Pickled Cucumbers

by Jessica on July 8, 2012

Crunchy Ginger-Pickled Cucumbers from My Baking Heart

Welcome to FFwD, the weekend edition! Since C and I were busy spending Friday in front of the camera, posing for our engagement photos, I was a bit too busy to get these Ginger-Pickled Cucumbers posted in time.

However, it’s a super-simple dish to prepare and one that goes perfectly with any summertime picnic or dinner al fresco. And thankfully, it only takes a few minutes to put together. After arriving home from an early morning of hair and makeup, a balmy shoot on the golf course, two wardrobe changes and recreating a 40s-era kitchen, I was ready to relax! The cucumbers have spent their sweet time in the fridge chilling and tonight, I’m serving them alongside C’s favorite… grilled Atlantic salmon.

As for the photos? They were so much fun to shoot. Now, I’m eagerly and anxiously awaiting for Jessica to send me the sneak peeks! And since you all were such a huge part of C and me winning, I’ll definitely be sharing them with you, so stay tuned! 🙂

Congratulations for the happy event!! What a great and unique theme for an engagement photo shoot! I would really like to see the photos! I did not have time to make the pickles either. I know time is a lame excuse because they were super quick to prepare. I was away from my kitchen from a few days but I promised I will make them sometime during the week and before the big adventure of the roulade!

These cucumbers were great! Just the right amount of vinegar. I do have trouble with too much vinegar and was hesitant to try these, but, they were delicious! Keep up the good cooking! And, I can’t wait for the photos to be posted!!

These cucumbers sound delicious! I love pickles and the addition of the ginger to these would be wonderful!
