There's no boiling water required and it takes less than 5 minutes to prep these quick pickled veggies!! They're the perfect crunchy vegetable addition to any of your favorite dishes!
Add as much (or as little) red pepper flakes as you'd like. I like a little bit of spice so 1/2 teaspoon is perfect for me. If you like it spicy, feel free to add more. If you're averse to spice, you can leave it out all together!
The longer these pickled veggies sit in the fridge, the stronger their flavors will become. 8 hours in the fridge is going to give you a great base of flavor but if you can make these veggies a couple days ahead of time, the flavor is just going to get that much better as it develops over time.
Feel free to switch up the veggies you'd like to pickle! You can literally pickle any vegetable under the sun! I can't think of a vegetable that wouldn't taste absolutely delicious pickled. As long as you keep the ratios about the same and cut all the veggies uniformly you should be able to use this same recipe with great results.
