Pickled Shredded Carrots

I’ve been waiting for these, watching them since I made them last Tuesday, tasting them every day. After almost a week, the pepper and garlic have infused every bite, and they’ve become one hell of a salad topping.

Inspiration: Taco truck pickled carrots plus pre-shredded carrots from Trader Joe’s.

Recipe 230 of 365

These are tangy, with a good garlic bite and a bit of spice. If you can’t find pre-shredded carrots, cut whole carrots into very thin slices on the bias.

TIME: 10 minutes
MAKES: About 4 cups shredded carrots

1 (10-ounce) bag shredded carrots
2 (6”) sprigs fresh oregano
2 cloves garlic, crushed
Pinch crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 bay leaf
3 cups apple cider vinegar, or enough to cover the carrots

Stuff half the carrots into a quart-size Ball jar, or similar container. Add the oregano, garlic, red pepper, salt, and bay leaf, and add the rest of the carrots. Pour the vinegar over the carrots, seal the jar, and let sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours (at the very, very least), preferably for one to two weeks. Eat as a snack, or add to salads or sandwiches.

  1. This recipe is amazing! Thanks so much! My batch turned out perfectly.

  2. First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I
    was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your head prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts
    in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually
    wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Many thanks!
