Grilled Mushrooms with Fresh Herbs

Refrigerator Pickles with Fennel and Dill

What makes Refrigerator Pickles with Fennel and Dill one of our favorite refrigerator pickle recipes is how the different parts of the fennel add different flavors and textures to the pickles and how the dill evokes a warm summer day.
