Refrigerator Pickled Salad

I love pickles.

OB hates pickles.

I suspect the entire state of Oklahoma is addicted to pickles. I have never met so many people who love pickles until I moved to Oklahoma.

How do you feel about pickles?

Although OB hates pickles he loves this pickled salad.  Maybe it’s because he loves me so he has to like my pickled salad.

Combine vinegar, sugar, salt and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan; stir well. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute our until sugar has dissolved. Once the liquid is ready remove from heat and add ice to cool vinegar mixture, let cool

While the liquid is cooling you can work on the vegetables.   I like to julienne all of the vegetables because I think it look purty.  I will leave it to your discretion.

This simple pickled salad is great on anything, you can also add a little crushed red pepper if you want some heat.  Use it in a Cuban sandwich, over grilled hotdogs, pulled pork, lox & bagel or grilled fish, the possibilities are endless.  It keeps up to 4 months, but it never lasts that long.

    OH MESEIDY! I could eat a jar of that by myself in one sitting. Girl? I’m making a batch of this for the family who’s visiting this week. If a bunch of Irish-American and Cambodian-American folks come up and kiss you randomly, you’ll know why.
