Pickled Daikon Cubes with Carrots and Jalapeños


This recipe is inspired by the daikon kimchee pickles that are served at the start of a Korean meal. These pickles are great served on the side or sliced up in sandwiches or salads. They can be eaten as soon as they’re chilled, but the flavors improve after a few days.
