Since you mention it Bucky, "pickled" is a term normally applied to people who are seriously drunk.

Long term.

I am not sure if this one fits Bucky. Let me know if you disagree.

A pickle is a cucumber that is pickled so it is not like the term pickling is being used incorrectly.

Maybe I am missing something here. Wouldn't be the first time ;)

I think this example illustrates the problem. I would interpret onion confit as onion cooked in its own juices, no oil, no herbs, you have another thought, so one of us is going to be dissatisfied.
I went to a pub last night (to see a live band) and noticed that on their menus they spelled everything out, even if it was a little prosaic, I was left in no doubt what they were intending. I would rather have it that way than guess or have to ask a (not well-informed) serving person.:oops:

gb, i see what you mean. it's not that far of a departure using the term pickles, but you should really say pickled cukes, if that's what is intended.

How about Florentine? Originally meaning in the cooking style of Florence, but now anything with spinach.
