VEGGIES: The "Quickle" aka Quick Pickled Radishes

Pickled Radishes

Let me start this by saying that I have never pickled anything. But I have great affection for pickles. The tangy sourness that pickles bring to the table is right up my alley.

I have always wanted to try to pickle cucumbers and other vegetables but it seemed a little too ambitious for me.  Who has that kind of time?! After watching several contestants on Food Network’s Chopped quick pickle various vegetables I decided to give it a try. A pickle in 30 minutes or less? I could do that!

I over planted radishes in the garden so I figured if the pickles didn’t turn out it wouldn’t be such a loss. Well….they came out perfectly and they added a nice tangy crunch to my spicy turkey lettuce wraps (recipe coming soon). And the pop of pink was a nice touch as well!


Radishes, 6, thinly sliced

Trader Joe’s Rice Vinegar, ~1/4 cup

Sea Salt, 1 tablespoon

Trader Joe’s Organic Blue Agave Sweetener , 2 tablespoons


1. Thinly slice the radishes and set aside.

2. Mix the vinegar, agave and sea salt in a bowl with a whisk.

3. Place the radishes in the bowl with the mixture and allow to sit for 20-30 minutes.

4. Serve immediately atop your favorite salad, sandwich, pasta dish or turkey lettuce wrap for a little extra crunch!

    Oh my goodness I’ve been looking for something to do with the multitude of radishes in the garden, besides just eating them! Am so happy I have all the necessary ingredients in my kitchen-hopefully will get a chance to make them today 🙂

    Oh wow. I tried these. Very interesting. I didn’t like them on their own, really strong smelling, but once they were in a sandwich they were perfect! They were crunchy and pickly and awesome. Will definitely make these again, just will remember to close my nose :).
