Adapting the Joy of Pickling's Vietnamese Pickled Carrot and Radish recipe I selected a variety of hot and sweet chili peppers with Vidalia onion to make some pickled toppings perfect for the Banh mi and other grinders. —Sagegreen

  • Makes 2 pints
  • 2/3 pound assorted chili peppers, sweet and hot varieties mixed
  • 1/3 pound Vidalia or other sweet onion

In This Recipe
  1. Slice the peppers and onions into slivers. Remove the seeds and membranes from the peppers. In a bowl toss the vegetables with the salt. Let stand 10 minutes, then rinse and drain well.
  2. Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar. Pour over the vegetables. Add the chile threads to the vegetables. Let them stand for 1 hour.
  3. The pickles are ready to use. Pack in clean glass jars covered tightly and stored in the refrigerator. These will keep for about a week. Drain the liquid off before serving.
