You can use this recipe to save and serve any of your favorite radish varieties, as well as give them an extra kick of flavor. Yield: 12 servings.


  • 12 globe radishes, thinly sliced
  • 2 large cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 shallots, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1⁄2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1⁄2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar


  1. Combine all ingredients. Ladle them into a 1-pint Mason jar and seal with a tight-fitting lid.
  2. Place the jar in the refrigerator. Allow the mixture to sit for at least 1 hour before serving. The flavor will be enhanced as the pickles rest in the fridge, but be sure to eat them within a month!
