Refrigerated Pickled Veggies
I had just a couple sweet gherkins, and a couple of Castlevetrano Olives left. I ate them. I thought to myself, Can I reuse the brine and pickle juice? I figured I'd give it a try. I can't give you measurements because i didn't use any. But the end result is definitely work sharing.
Pour the brine from the olive jar into a bowl. Pour the pickling juice from the gherkins jar into the same bowl. Add ]/2 tsp. dried Rosemary. to the mix. Wash, then quarter lengthwise a half cucumber, then slice it into bite-sized pieces. Add two tbs. white vinager and stir.
Add halved cherry tomatoes, sliced onion, cauliflowers, and broccoli as desired. Cover and place in the fridge for three days.
As I said, this came out very tasty, and refreshing to boot. So, don't throw away that pickling juice, or olive brine. Re-purpose it and get a yummy snack, or relish tray.
