Then I remembered those wonderful pickled red onions I made last year, and the Finnish cucumber salad my daughter likes so much, so spent a few hours this morning stuffing the already full fridge with those zesty condiments. Easy to make, and delicious with everything from cold chicken or fish, to French potato salad, they're a perfect way to use up your summer abundance. AND I used the last of the dill, mostly stems by then, to start a new bottle of dill vinegar. So pleasing to have all three of these condiments stashed in the fridge and pantry.
Enjoying the blue, blue sky with wispy clouds overhead , the chattering of the children just back from the beach - and eyeing my bed for a little siesta:) Enjoy your summer days!
