Pickled Daikon Radish and Carrot Salad

  • Servings: 6 cups
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

• 1 daikon radish (peeled and sliced into matchstick size pieces)
• 12 medium carrots (peeled and sliced into matchstick size pieces)
• 5 Thai Chilies (optional but it does add a nice hint of spice)
• 3 cups water
• 1 ½ cup vinegar (we used pickling blend)
• 1 cup sugar
• 2 ½ tablespoons sea salt

1. Prepare the daikon radish and carrots. Peel and slice into matchstick sized pieces.
2. Pour the water in a pot, and bring it to just under a boil. Add the vinegar, sugar, and salt. Stir to combine.
3. Add the daikon, carrots, and chili to a jar. Pour in the water mixture.
4. The salad is ready to eat in a couple of hours, and will pickle faster at room temperature. If you are making it ahead of time, go ahead and put it in the fridge.
