Pickled vegetables or “curtido” as this particular version is called, are so quick and easy to make. Which is good, because that need for a vinegary bite of something strikes me fairly often.
I have been waiting for this supposed “cauliflower shortage” to work itself out because I have been craving these pickled vegetables and I was not about to pay $7 for a head of cauliflower… Call me crazy.
I had completely resigned myself to the idea that I was not going to fulfill my craving anytime soon because the price of cauliflower was not budging and i just could not bring myself to pay three times the normal price. However, that little (ever-present, annoying, extremely loud) nagging voice in the back of brain said “Hey, let’s just walk over there and check”. Gah, I hate when she’s right… well, maybe just this once it’s okay.
