I found these gorgeous watermelon radishes at the market recently and decided to buy an entire basketful thinking I'd figure out what to use them for on my way home from the store. A couple of stir fries later and I was just left with several I didn't know what to do with. The idea of pickling these beauties came to me because I usually have a couple jars of indian pickles in the refrigerator that helps to enhance some of the simpler dishes I make at home. But I generally tend to only use my indian pickles with indian food.
While I've made pickled red onions before, I thought I'd use the same pickling solution for these watermelon radishes and they came out perfectly! So easy to make and so colorful, it really enhances the dishes you eat visually and adds a nice tangy bite to your tacos, avocado toasts, ramen noodles and of course salads. Follow the recipe below in the video. You'll see just how easy it is to make your very own batch!
Looking for something tangy, healthy and colorful to add to your dishes? These watermelon radishes are just the thing!
