Pickled Radishes Made With Apple Cider Vinegar
I made this Easy and super healthy recipe with Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar. This is my first choice for this recipe, but you can also use other types like wine vinegar if you prefer.
I believe apple cider vinegar is a great choice. It is claimed to lead to all sorts of benefits, many of which are supported by science. This includes weight loss, reduced cholesterol, lower blood sugar levels and improved symptoms of diabetes. Learn more about the health benefits of apple cider vinegar HERE.
Health Benefits Of Radishes
Radishes are super healthy too. They are full of vitamins, minerals and fiber. The good thing about them is you eat them raw preserving all their nutritional value. Radishes are a great source of fiber, potassium, magnesium, vitamin C, and calcium. They are good for your digestive system and can help relieve bloating or indigestion.
Adding more radishes to your diet could help you lower your blood pressure, cleanse your kidneys, and improve your hydration. Plus, their crisp, peppery taste and vibrant tint sets them apart from other root vegetables (SOURCE).
This recipe is so easy and healthy. Try them as a side dish or with your favorite salads. You won’t be disappointed. Radishes are delicious and full of health benefits. I can eat a whole bowl full of sweet and sour pickled radishes. Yes, they are that good! I just had to warn you that this recipe is truly addictive!
Easy to make, healthy and delicious pickled radishes.
- 1 bunch radishes (about 10–12 radishes)
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt (just a pinch)
- Slice the radishes as thinly as possible.
- In a medium size bowl, mix the vinegar, maple syrup, olive oil, and sea salt. You can also add a little pepper if you want. If you like them extra sweet just add an extra tablespoon of maple syrup. Try it and adjust it according to your personal taste.
- Add the sliced radishes and mix well.
- Place everything in a small to medium glass tupperware (one that has a lid). You can also use a big mason jar with lid. Put the closed container in the fridge.
- The radishes will be ready in a couple of hours, but are best if kept in the fridge overnight. They will absorb all the sweet and sour flavor.
- To serve just take them out of the container (leaving some of the liquid) and enjoy.
- They will be good for about a week if kept refrigerated.
