2-Ingredient Refrigerator Pickled Veggies

What You'll Need


2 cups raw onion, red cabbage, or radishes, sliced or diced

Distilled white vinegar


How to Make It


1 Chop or dice your veggies into your desired size and shape.

2 Fill a 16 oz. glass Mason jar (or other container with a secure lid) with the chopped veggies.

3 Cover the veggies with distilled white vinegar. Add any spices or herbs, if desired.

4 Secure the container’s lid tightly and place in the refrigerator.

5 Allow the veggies to marinate in the vinegar for at least 24 hours, but preferably 3 days, before first use.

Cooking Tips

The pickled veggies will last in the fridge for at least 2 weeks, and usually longer.

Red cabbage and radishes last the longest, with minimal deterioration after the second week. These can be eaten at the 3-week mark.

Red onions will start to get a little murky looking around the 2-week mark.

Use on salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, and pizzas!
