These are my favorite refreshing pickles for hot summer days.
2 pickling pickles (regular pickles work too).
2 tomatoes (cut into wedges)
1 red onion
5 radishes (cut into wedges).
2 carrots (cut into strips).
1 chili pepper
11/2c rice vinegar(I also use rice vinegar)
1c cilantro leaves (chopped)
4tbsp granulated sugar
1) Wash your vegetables.
2) Peel and slice the vegetables.
3) Put vegetables in jars or in a crock(as shown), and top with pickling juices.
4) Allow to sit for at least 4 hours before enjoying them, the longer they sit, the better refreshing they are.
