Note Full-sour pickles are left in their brine while new pickles (also known as half-sour pickles) are removed from their brine early and are more crunchy.

Honeycup mustard is available from select grocers and The Essential Ingredient.

This recipe is from the March 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“This dish started because we found exceptional fresh cucumbers at the market,” says Torrisi. “We decided to make the dish about pickles and the Lower East Side. We buy our pickles from the Pickle Guys on Essex Street in different stages of the pickling process. We then slice them all, combine them with the raw cucumbers, and dress it with mustard and coriander. It’s a kaleidoscope of cucumber in homage to one of our favourite NYC neighbourhoods.”
