These carrots are a quick-fix version of those little jars of deliciousness you see at authentic taco trucks. Prep them the night before for maximum spiciness. Try them in taco salads or a Lifesaving Bowl.


  • 4 carrots, grated
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) apple cider vinegar


Combine the carrots, vinegar, jalapeño, sugar, cumin, and salt in a quart-size (1 L) canning jar. Press the carrots down and add water just to cover. Put the lid on and shake to combine. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight, then serve. (The carrots can be refrigerated for up to 1 week—though they likely won’t last that long!)
