Quick pickled vegetables are used as a palate cleanser. They are great on sandwiches, tapas trays and as appetizers. This is a great recipe to have on hand as a refreshing accompaniment to our weeknight dinners.
We like them as a refreshing accompaniment to our weeknight dinners.
Here we’ve packed some onto a Pork Belly Bun (Bao) — a Taiwanese street food. The steamed bun is made of Lotus Leaf flour which sounds exotic but doesn’t pack any strange flavors like you may think and is a good gluten-free option — though that’s not why we chose it.
The quick pickled vegetables are used in this sandwich to cut through the richness of the pork belly. So these vegetable pair very well with many sandwiches and as a side dish or between courses.
Another example is this Banh Mi slider. We used a different quick pickle mix here specific to the Vietnamese Banh Mi Sliders recipe that has radishes.
Beware though that radishes contain sulfur compounds and can be a bit smelly when pickled. The odor dissipates once you open the container and the sulfur doesn’t give any flavor to the pickles at all.
Just a note to be aware of if you plan to use radishes in your Quick Pickled Vegetable mix.
