Recipe: Vietnamese Pickled Carrot & Daikon

If you're a fan of Vietnamese food, chances are you've come across these pickled carrot and daikon in your banh mi. Since we have lots of free time, I decided to make some at home - you only need some simple ingredients for the pickling solution such as rice vinegar, salt, sugar and water. Leave for about 1 hour, and they will be ready to eat!

Tangy, slightly sweet, crunchy and refreshing - love it! We used these pickles in our version of egg banh-jo, a cross of two famous sandwiches - British egg banjo and Vietnamese banh mi! Do look out for the recipe in this post.
