Quick Pickle Sandwich

I am like real poor these days. It sucks. So, I have to be creative with my eating. Despite my lack of cash, I refuse to have a bad meal, life is too short.

You can pick up a bunch of radishes for a dollar and a cucumber for even less.   

For my cucumbers, I just sliced and covered in salt and a light douse of white vinegar. I didn't completely cover them in vinegar because I have found it can get soggy. They can be eaten immediately or you can wait for more sourness. 

I usually slice my radishes and eat them raw with course salt and vinegar. I really love vinegar. This time I tried something different. I made a brine using this recipe as a starting point. I added some coriander and some kombucha just for fun. These need a day to be ready. 

The cucumbers and radishes work as a snack, but they can become a poor girl's lunch on some bread with cream cheese (low-fat, duh).
