Quick Pickled Radishes

  • Author: by Serena Ball, RD
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


These no-cook quick radish pickles take only as long as boiling water and slicing a few veggies; the snappy recipe is adaptable to any vegetable on hand.


  • 1 bunch radishes (or one large watermelon radish like I had from my garden!)
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon sea kosher salt
  • 1 piece (1/2-inch square) fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper
  • (optional)1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds (and/or sesame seeds and/or mustard seeds)


  1. Cut radishes into quarters – if small; if large slice into half circles. Place in a large glass bowl.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients except radishes. Heat to boiling and pour over radishes. Cool. Store in the refrigerator.
