Karl’s Japanese Bar Style Pickles

I found a book Izakaya: Japanese Bar food. A few weeks ago I made some pickled cucumbers for my Japanese bar meal. Because it was a last minute decision, I did not have the hours necessary to marinate the cucumbers and carrots. For my ramen meal, I took the time to make the bar style pickles more like the book’s recipe.

Karl’s Lightly Pickled Carrots Salad with Spinach

I needed a salad for Christmas Eve dinner. Jan really loves carrot salad, but I wanted at least some green veg in the meal, so I added some baby spinach. I have made this salad before as a spinach salad, garnished with carrots. Here I reverse the proportions, a carrot salad garnished with some spinach.
