One of my all-time favorite summer treats is bruschetta. I could devour a fresh batch in 2.2 seconds flat. There really was nothing better.
Hello, nightshade intolerance. Bye, bye, bruschetta.
I was beginning to feel like the summer just wouldn’t be the same. Enter in the pickling cucumbers. I had originally bought them to make…er…pickles. But still haven’t found pickling spice locally. And so they sat. Until I realized that I had all of the ingredients on hand to make a lovely cucumber salad with all of the old favorite bruschetta ingredients (minus the tomatoes, of course).
I almost feel guilty calling this a recipe. It is way too easy to make to warrant any fancy title like that. But it’s too delicious not to share.
