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 sticky Italian specialty, also known as torrone, has a light lemony bite, a honeyed sweetness, and a marshmallow-like smoothness that's the perfect backdrop to the crunch of toasted almonds. Get the packaging how-to for the Lemony Almond Nougat.
