Quick Mexican Pickled Onions and Carrots are traditional garnishes or condiments offered at Mexican restaurants as a flavor brightener. Make your own in 30 minutes.
You know that little bowl of pickled vegetables they bring you at Mexican restaurants?
It usually has sliced onions, diagonally cut carrots and sometimes hot pepper rings, swimming in a salty vinegar bath.
You can make it in 30 minutes, and it’s a great little garnish or addition to tacos, burritos, Mexican dinner bowls, nachos, or any Latin-flavored dish that comes out of your kitchen.
You’re just going to toss everything in a bowl and let it marinate for a little bit.
Grab an onion. I was growing them, so I got this one from the garden. It looks a bit gnarly…
…but once cleaned up and peeled looks very presentable!
Grab a carrot and the bottle of apple cider vinegar from the pantry, and let’s get to it.
These pickled vegetables will perk up nearly any main course you can think of!
