  • 1 pound radishes, about 1 bunch
  • ¼ cup dill, or other herbs
  • 2 tablespoons mustard seeds
  • 2 whole garlic cloves, sliced thin
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • Prep the radishes: Cut radish roots from leaves and wash well to remove excess dirt. If pickling sliced radishes, cut them into thin slices, about ¼” (or ½ cm) thick.
  • Prepare the pickling jar: Add cut radishes to a tall jar and add dill, mustard seeds, garlic, and red pepper flakes.
  • Prepare and add the brine: In a medium saucepan bring the water, vinegar, salt, and sugar to a boil. Once boiling, pour into the jar until the liquid completely submerges the radishes. Close the lid on the jar tightly.
  • Pickling instructions: Let the jar cool on the counter until it reaches room temperature. Once cooled, put the jar into the refrigerator and let the radishes pickle for at least 4 hours before serving, but for best results serve after at least 24 hours. Quick pickled radishes are good up to 2-3 months in the refrigerator.


  • Vinegar: White vinegar, white wine vinegar, and apple cider vinegar are the best vinegar choices for pickling peppers.
  • Recommended jar: Choose a jar so radishes fit snug with about ½ - 1 inch space (2-3 cm) below the lid to ensure the brine covers them completely.
  • Other recommended tools: small saucepan, cutting board, knife set
  • Prep ahead and storage: Refrigerator pickled radishes should be made at least 4 hours before serving, but for best results make at least 24-48 hours ahead. Keep them refrigerated and they can be enjoyed for up to 2-3 months. Do not freeze.
  • Nutrition notes: This recipe uses only plant-based ingredients and it is gluten-free. It does call for a high amount of salt for the brine, however the amount actually absorbed by the radishes themselves is small compared to the amount of salt used in the recipe.
