Bright-hued sweet vegetable pickles are a welcome change from typical sandwich toppers. Paper-thin zucchini ribbons are tender-crisp. Be sure to let the brine cool completely before pouring it over the thinly sliced vegetables. If submerged in hot liquid, the zucchini will quickly turn soggy and won't retain its shape or texture during pickling.
This all-purpose brine yields lip-smacking pickles that are salty, tangy, and just slightly sweet. The pickles make great Father's Day gifts when placed in jars adorned with our clip art designs printed on clear decal sheets.
