Gingery Pickled Radishes

  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN Plus 24 hr pickling
  • SERVINGS: Makes about 1 1/2 quarts

Tangy, crunchy radish pickles are delicious with rich meat dishes. "Salt plays a critical role in balancing the flavor of a vinegar pickle brine," Andrea Reusing says. "When you're making your own brine, taste it first. If it seems unbalanced, it likely doesn't have enough salt."
