Haitian Pikliz Recipe

Pikliz is a Haitian relish consisting of a combination of pickled vegetables such as shredded cabbage, carrots, onions, shallots, and spicy peppers. Traditionally, pikliz is consumed as an accompaniment to fried pork (griot), fried beef (tassot), or fried plantains, although it can also be paired with fish.

The spiciness of this relish is said to pair extremely well with almost all freshly fried main dishes.



2½ cups thinly sliced cabbage, cut crosswise 2-3 times for shorter shreds (from about ¼ large cabbage)

1 cup julienned or grated carrots (from about 1 medium carrot)

½ cup thinly sliced shallots (from about 1 large shallot)

6 Scotch bonnet peppers, stemmed, quartered

3 sprigs thyme

8 whole cloves

1 teaspoon kosher salt

3 cups (or more) distilled white vinegar

3 tablespoons fresh key lime (or regular lime) juice




Pack cabbage, carrots, shallots, peppers, thyme, cloves, and salt into a 1½ quart resealable jar. 

Add vinegar and lime juice, seal jar, and shake until ingredients are distributed and salt is dissolved.

 Add more vinegar if needed to just cover vegetables. Chill, shaking gently twice daily, at least 3 days before serving.





Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.kjv
