daikon carrot lemongrass quick pickle

It’s frizzy-hair-in-a-headband season on the east coast. Sunglasses slide off your face. Don’t even try to have a cell phone chat while strolling around outside. Uncool. The heavy air, the heat rolling off the pavement makes me want sharp tastes.

Shaved daikon and carrots quick pickled with lemongrass is the remedy. It’s peppery. I like this quick pickle on a bulgogi sandwich or as a condiment with any sort of barbeque. It brings a kick of bright taste and the bite of vinegar.

Daikon carrot lemongrass quick pickle is like jumping into a frosty pool of water in the middle of a heat wave. It’ll sharpen you up, set you straight and wipe the haze of a city summer from your eyes.

No heat required.
