Do you ever buy something more than needed at the grocery store because it’s on sale? I try not to buy more than needed, but some sales are hard to pass. It would be easier to pass if I didn’t have two screaming kids in my cart. I end up grabbing things without really thinking things through. My face cringes when I have to toss away produce that is past the use date. Either I’ve forgotten to use it in time or I changed my mind about a planned meal. My quick pickled radish with red wine vinegar recipe was a product of a poor decision on a sale, but I turned it into something really good.
I had bought a large amount of radishes and there was much more than I could use in a salad. So, I came up with a recipe for a quick pickled radish with red wine vinegar. You’ve probably seen a few pickling recipes with white vinegar. I can lie and say that I wanted something more refined made with red wine vinegar. The reality is that I didn’t have any white vinegar, so red wine vinegar it was.
The result was the tart pickled radish that you would expect, but with a slightly sweeter tone. It’s perfect for fish tacos, burgers, salmon filets, and as a stand alone snack! My daughter loves when I make these pickled radishes, which was a surprise since the red wine vinegar makes the radish look so pink that they are almost unrecognizable. She’s pretty picky with her food, even still at 17! Enjoy these radishes!
