Pickled Veggies is there anything more versatile? Salads, sandwiches, pasta..they can make a simple dish a bit more exciting.  Pickled Carrots and Daikon is one of my favorite things to pickle because they are great to add to many dishes I like to make, like fried rice!  I never knew how easy it was to make until I moved away years back and learned it out of necessity.  And now you too can make it 🙂  My only word of caution is Daikon can have a distinct pungent smell that may be unappealing if you’re not familiar with it.  SOoo ANyways~ if you still want to make this yummy crunchy condiment here’s my version of it.
