Quick Pickled Red Cabbage

I love pickled veggies! Pickled onions, carrots, beets, cabbage, and of course – cucumbers (aka pickles)! I grew up eating my Grammie’s pickled carrots and beets. They honestly made such a delicious addition to any meal.

As does this pickled red cabbage! I love to enjoy it on salads, sandwiches, tacos, and nourish bowls. Sometimes I even enjoy a forkful straight outta the jar! Don’t tell anyone. 😉

What I love about this recipe is that it’s quick – hence the name Quick Pickled Red Cabbage’. It takes all of 10 minutes to pull together and then 30 minutes or so in the fridge. That’s it!
