What are Quick Pickled Vegetables?

Assorted crunchy vegetables soaked in flavorsome vinegar water are pickled vegetables. Crisp veggies turn slightly tangy, sweet and savory and make such a delightful salad. The best part about this is that these can be prepared and packed in jars and refrigerated for up to 2 months. Another good thing about this salad is it can be prepared with whatever vegetables are available. Your leftover veggies in the fridge can be converted into pickled vegetables and stored. Pickled vegetables are good party salad, prepare it in advance and serve at the party, totally fuss-free.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Pickled Vegetables

Vinegar is a must-have in my pantry. I use it to make paneer00. Also, a staple salad at my place, which is the cocktail onion or vinegar onion, is also prepared using vinegar. Vinegar is also used for preparing various pastes such as garlic paste, ginger paste and so on. It increases the shelf life of the veggies. Let’s have a look at the ingredients required for pickled vegetables:

Vegetables: I have used cucumber, zucchini and carrots to make pickled vegetables. I did one mistake. I peeled the cucumbers. Do not peel it otherwise it will lose the bite. I have cut these veggies lengthwise and kept the length of the vegetables same. You can cut the vegetables into roundels or cubes as per your liking. Further, you can make separate pickled vegetables. I have combined all the vegetables.

Vinegar, water, and sugar: These 3 ingredients go in the ratio of 2:2:1 respectively.

Flavoring: Few fresh ingredients have been used to flavor the pickled vegetables i.e. garlic, ginger and green chilies. No spices have been used. You may use bay leaves, cinnamon, etc.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
