Pickled vegetables are a great accompaniment to weeknight dinners - very simple and adds loads of flavor! They're especially good on sandwiches, beans and rice, and in tacos. I looooooove pickled vegetables. I'm making some tonight to go on beef tacos.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup or so of veggies of choice (I like red onion, carrots and jalapenos, but I also added radishes this time!)
  • 1 clove garlic, cut into fourths
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
Method:
  1. chop up your veggies! slice them thin!
  2. pour the vinegar and water into a measuring cup, add the salt and sugar
  3. microwave for two minutes
  4. place veggies & garlic in a bowl and pour over the hot liquid
  5. leave until they come to room temp and then serve or chill in the fridge!
They will get a little soft the longer they sit - they're good for a week, but best eaten within a couple days after they're made. :) Also keep in mind that if you use jalapenos or other hot peppers and don't take out the seeds and membrane, the liquid will get spicier and spicier. Not for the faint of heart. :D

Also: if you don't need them right away, feel free to combine all the ingredients in a mason jar and put it in the fridge overnight - no heating up the liquid is needed.
<p>Great recipe! I made it a year ago and it was delicious on a pizza with feta cheese. And then I developed my own version (<a href="http://approachingfood.com/making-the-most-of-leftovers-easy-pickled-vegetables/" rel="nofollow">http://approachingfood.com/making-the-most-of-leftovers-easy-pickled-vegetables/</a>), so thanks for the inspiration! </p>
I'll have to make it!!! and your pictures are always amazing.
I used to work in a Mexican restaurant and they called this &quot;relish&quot;. It goes great on pretty much anything except dessert. I bet the radishes do add a nice texture. Good 'ible.
<span style="font-size: 12.0px;">So how where the radishes?</span>
Good! They actually lose a bit of their bite this way, so you don't get much bitterness, but the texture is fantastic. :D
I am going to make some right now. And from the photo's I am guessing that is 1/2 cup of vinegar too? Sounds right to me. I don't have the hot peppers, but I just bought some bell peppers and I have onions, carrots &amp; garlic for sure. Yummmm!
Yep, 1/2 cup of vinegar. :D <br /> <br />Bell peppers are really good in the mix too!
