Crunchy Quick Pickle Recipe for any Veggie

This super simple crunchy quick pickle recipe will work with any veggie you would like to pickle.   I love it with golden beets, red onions, and spiraled cucumbers.  It also makes a delicious crunchy quick pickled carrots and jalapeños.  But a jar of purple cabbage is pretty perfect too!  We’ve had lots of fun creating tons of different combinations, and this recipe is by far my favorite recipe to pickle anything.

What makes this pickled recipe so good? Crunchiness. We use fresh raw veggies, and allow them so soak up the pickle brine for just a short period of time. This gives them all the delicious flavor of a pickled veggie, but allows them to hold onto their crisp crunchy texture.  Which, is the best part!
