Welcome to the final post in our beet series with Christiann Koepke! This quick pickled vegetable recipe is extremely versatile. It’s a nice touch to pair veggies that in the same color family. Here, you’ll see a bright pink version with red onion, radish, and beet. You can swap these for a different combination like cucumber and turnip. Just add some fresh dill within the last hour before serving. The addition of agave is optional based on your preference. It balances out the vinegar without using the traditional method of added white sugar.

Servings: 1 large jar


  • 3 small-medium roasted beets, quartered lengthwise
