Quick Pickled Radicchio, Radish, and Apple (AIP, Paleo, Whole 30, Vegan)

For the recently holiday weekend, Emily and I packed up my car (to the max) and ventured up to visit my parents for the week. They live about 2 hours away and we don't get to see them too often, so we decided to make it a nice long visit. One of my favorite things to do while home is shop at all the amazing discount grocery stores. They have nothing like them where I live, so I always stock up when I am in town.

On our last day there, we stopped in at this place called Ebenzer's Groceris. It has this huge freezer full of fresh produce, half traditional and half organic. The best part is the prices. I left with at least 5 bags of fresh produce for under $40. One item I picked up was two pretty decent size heads of organic radicchio, which were two for $1!!! Since this is something I don't normally buy for us, I wasn't sure what I would do with it, besides add it to a salad.

Then, the other night, after I pulled it out and stared at the radicchio for a while, I said to the hubby, "I want to make something with this, but I have no idea what." To which my brilliant hubby said, "why don't you pickle it?" And that was it, I knew exactly what to do. Thus the quick pickled radicchio, radish, and apple recipe was conceived.

Quick Pickled Radicchio, Radish, and Apple 


  • 2 cups radicchio, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup, red radish, cut in to matchsticks
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Add shredded radicchio to a medium bowl and sprinkle sea salt all over and let sit for 2 minutes.
  2. Stir radicchio up and then add in remaining ingredients
  3. Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 3 days to enjoy later.
