Quick Pickle Onion + Radish

I like a good quick pickle - or slow pickle, for that matter. Cucumbers, onions, radishes, I like them all! This is definitely not a traditional kind of ferment, although I have a lot of experience with that. This is super simple and often times I end up making it as I start prepping dinner, although it's best if it can sit for a day.
Here's how I do it:
Radishes - I like to get these fresh from the farm
Onions - I think they taste best sliced in ribbons/longer strips opposed to the shorter chops shown in the picture.
Water - after putting in the veg and salt, I fill the dish (post coming soon) with three quarters filter, structured water.
ACV - And one quarter apple cider vinegar
Sugar - while this is optional, a pinch of sweetness elevates the flavor. I've tried with a variety of sweeteners!
For amounts of veggies, I typically use half a bunch of radishes and half an onion.
