Pickled Veggie Salad

Rated as 3.67 out of 5 Stars

"Celery -- you buy it, knowing you'll throw away most of it. But wouldn't you like to use it up? And those scallions and carrots, too... Well, here's a recipe that revitalizes your fresh veggies by steeping them in a vinegar and water solution. This is a combination of several different recipes for Asian-style cucumber salads. I like to pour it over a salad, but you could just pick out the veggies and them solo. Use any veggies you like -- I've chosen the ones I most often have waiting around!"

  1. Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the sesame seeds, and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Scrape into a metal mixing bowl, and cool to room temperature.
  2. Whisk the vinegar, teriyaki sauce, black pepper, red pepper flakes, ginger root, and sweetener into the sesame seed mixture. Stir in the celery, green onions, carrots, bell pepper, cucumber, and onion into the sesame dressing until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate until cold before serving.


  • Cook's Note
  • I like to serve this over a spinach salad, and top with fresh or canned pineapple, canned mandarin oranges, fresh apples, or other fruits. This can also be made with rice vinegar, or regular sugar/honey, or soy sauce.

This is my recipe. It's for a DRESSING with veggies in it, not for a salad itself. It will be too wet and probably too tangy if you attempt to eat it just like it's written. It needs to be eaten...

I am tickled pink to be the first reviewer. I have tried a bunch of pickled salads on this site including slaws, cucumber salads, etc. and this one is by far my favorite. The only real change I ...

We didn't care for it at all. No flavor and the combination of items didn't go together well.
