    So who's pickling what?

    1 cup shredded cabbage
    1/2 cup shredded carrots
    1/2 cup coarsly chopped wild celery (1/2 cup celery and 1/2 teaspoon celery seed)
    1/2 cup green bell peppers
    1 1/2 cups red bell peppers chopped
    1/3 cup seeded and chopped green chilies
    2 tablespoons salt
    evoo
    white wine vinegar

    Wash the chopped veggies and allow to dry before pickling.place in a large basin,sprinkle with the salt,and toss to combine.Place in two 3-cup mason jars,leaving about 3 inches of space on top.Pour olive oil halfway up the jars.Fill the rest of the way with the vinegar.Close and turn upside down to combine inside the jars.refridgerate at least 3 weeks before using.The veggies will keep indefinitely

    Today I was learning about the many types of pickling,and was wondering how many of you are doing so,and if so..what's your pickle :)

    CC: that's very much like a salad I make, except I add a little sugar and leave out the oil -- but I store it in the fridge. Also, depending on what I have around, I may add julienned jicama or other veg. This works as a salad, as an addition to sandwiches, on top of rice (instead of kimchee).

    Considering the source, is this a Greek recipe? It seems so universal. :lips:

    I've been doing quick cucumber pickles lately, and it's been hit or miss. More often, I miss, actually, by using too much acid. The other night though, I used lemon juice instead of vinegar, cut it with a bit of water, and used more sugar than usual; it worked out pretty well.

    Do you shake to mix, or sort of let it remain somewhat separate? Does it "mix" during the three weeks of curing? The recipe looks great. Thanks for posting it.
