Vietnamese Pickled Vegetables

1 lb. carrots, peeled and julienned

½ lb. cucumber, julienned

1 lb. daikon, peeled and julienned

2 T. kosher salt

1 ½ c. unseasoned rice vinegar

1 c. sugar

1 c. water

After peeling and julienning the carrots, cucumbers and daikon into match-sized pieces, pat them dry with a paper towel to remove any excess water. Mix all of the vegetables together.

Mix the unseasoned rice vinegar, salt, sugar and water together until the sugar completely dissolves.

Place the mixed vegetables in a jar, packing them loosely. Pour the liquid into the jar, completely submerging the vegetables.

Seal the jar with a lid, and store the sealed jar in the refrigerator. The pickled vegetables will be ready to eat in one day, but taste best after about five days.
