Pickled radishes add a nice flavor to so many things, including salads, noodle bowls, tacos, and brisket sandwiches. They're even great on their own! They're easily customizable with different spices and seasonings. These are ready in minutes, but the flavor only gets better overnight. They will turn a lovely shade of pink the longer they sit. Use a mandoline slicer for quick, even slicing. Will keep for several weeks.

If you too have an elderly father-in-law who continues to bring excess government radishes to your home, consider pickling them using THIS recipe! We’ve got 8 jars in the cupboard. I might start giving them out as office Christmas gifts with a beautiful garland around the top. Read More
