  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion

for the quick pickle brine:


  1. Slice and dice all of the veggies and pack them into a large jar with a tight-fitting lid..
  2. Whisk together the rice vinegar, honey, salt and red pepper flakes.
  3. Pour this mixture over the veggies. It may not cover them to the top, but as the veggies soften, you should be able to tamp them down.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. The longer you leave them sit, the stronger the pickled flavor will be. Quick pickled veggies will last up to one week in the refrigerator.
