Quick Pickled Mixed Vegetable Salad with Turmeric

A pretty can of mixed veggies caught my eye at Walmart. I wanted to turn them into a Quick Pickled Mixed Vegetable Salad with Turmeric, using a sweet three bean salad as my inspiration. The only colors missing from the can were red and white, an easy fix:@) Onion was a no-brainer and any kind of red pepper would work, fresh bell pepper or drained pimentos or roasted peppers which is what I used here. This is a nice little pickled salad that would work well with the warmer weather.
Some of these measurements may seem kind of small, just guess at them as best you can. 
I have a 1/8 tsp measuring spoon and fill it half way. Or if you're making this for a larger crowd double the recipe.  

Quick Pickled Mixed Vegetable Salad with Turmeric
15 oz can of mixed vegetables, drained well
2 Tblsp vinegar-I used cider vinegar
1 1/2 Tblsp sugar
2 Tblsp onion, thinly sliced or small diced
2 Tblsp red pepper, either bell, drained pimento or drained roasted peppers, diced
1/8 tsp dry mustard
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/16 tsp turmeric-add more if you'd like, I hear it's good for us
1/16 tsp celery seed
four hearty grinds of fresh black pepper
  • Combine everything in bowl except can of veggies. Add mixed vegetables, gently mix and let marinate at least 3 hours. I make it in a Lock and Lock bowl and just turn it upside down every time I pass it.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)

  2. What a colorful salad and I really enjoy using turmeric. I don't know about you, but it seems like everytime I use turmeric I manage to get a little stain on either a kitchen towel or me :)
