This quick and easy pickled vegetables is a popular condiment to Vietnamese grilled pork chops and banh mi sandwiches. It has a similar taste with Pickled Green Papaya (Atcharang Papaya) but this version requires no cooking at all.

Usually these vegetables are cut into match-like strips. But I find using a vegetable peeler (for the carrots and cucumbers) easier and quicker. With a peeler, the slices are wider and longer, but thinner.

I use rice vinegar as I don’t like the sourness to be too strong. Rice vinegar is a mild and delicate vinegar that adds just a little extra zing. The recipe below is a good baseline for the brine mixture. Taste the brine before adding it to the sliced vegetables, then add more sugar, rice vinegar, or salt to suite your taste. Be sure to mix well to dissolve the sugar.
