Almost-Instant Veggie Pickles

A few minutes and three ingredients – lemon (or lime) juice, sugar, and salt – are all you need to tame and tenderize piquant veggies like radishes and onions, turning them into much more pleasant salad ingredients or condiments for sandwiches or meat. Try cukes and carrots this way, too. 

  • 4 ounces very thinly sliced radishes, onions, cucumbers, or carrots
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • Kosher salt or fine sea salt

Put the sliced veggies in a small nonreactive bowl and add the lemon or lime juice, the sugar, and a couple big pinches of salt. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes, tossing occasionally. Drain the liquid from the veggies and use them in salads or sandwiches or with fish or meat.
