Spicy Celery Sweet Onion salad/lacto-fermentation
Since Memorial holiday this year, I felt not much desire to cook near my stove in a 3-digit steaming weather. On the other side, farmer’s market are packed with lots of nice-looking vegetables. Why not making large batch of fresh salad which easily turn to lacto-fermentation in a day or two later.
- 2 lb sweet onion
- 2 lb celery
- 1 carrot
- 4 garlic cloves
- 2 Tsp hot pepper flake
- 1 1/2 Tsp salt
- 1-2 Tsp fish sauce, (or soy sauce)
- 2 tsp sugar
Clean all vegetable really well and slice celery and sweet onion. Add salt and sugar and mix them well by hands. Set aside for 1 hour, turn at 30 min point.
Julianne carrots, mince garlic. In a small mixing bowl, transfer carrots, garlic into this bowl. Add hot pepper flakes, fish sauce or soy sauce. If you want to eat it immediately, add 1 Tsp fish sauce, later add the remaining 1 Tsp for fermentation. Keep the left over at room temperature for 8 -12 hours before transfer to fridge.
