These Simple Sweet and Sour Quick Pickled Vegetables are so simple to make and a great addition to sandwiches, salads, vegetable trays and more. They are simply delicious on their own as well.
It was on a recent stop at the produce stand that I found these beautiful Watermelon Radishes. I had never had a Watermelon Radish before, so I decided to grab a couple and give them a try.
I was pleasantly surprised. They are not as harsh as a regular radish, they only have a slight peppery note to them and a nice crisp sweetness.
I decided to thinly slice them on the mandoline and then do a sweet and sour pickle. I ended up using them on the Bahn Mi sandwich sliders that I made for a catering event.
The bright pink radishes added a brilliant pop of color and their crisp sweet and sour deliciousness were the perfect compliment to the sandwiches Asian BBQ Chicken Bahn Mi Sliders.
