I did some out of the box thinking on what else to add zing to traditional mixed vegetable pickles and thought of giving a shot to fruits.
The star ingredients of the pickle are pineapple, cranberries, and Pepper jack cheese besides the seasonal winter vegetables - Caulifower, Rainbow Carrots, Mini Raddish, Turnips, Baby Corn, French Beans, Peas, Garden Chillies, & Ginger Jullien's!
The pickle is the perfect medley of savory and sweet flavors enhanced with a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds and poppy seeds enjoyed with mini poppadums.

Retro presentation - Simply Loved it!
I used the medley of Caulifower, Rainbow Carrots, Mini Raddish & Turnips, Baby Corn, French Beans, Peas, Garden Chillies, Ginger Jullien's, Pineapple, Cranberries, and Cheese!
The masala can be made with dry roasting and grinding fennel, fenugreek, mustard, cumin, carrom coriander, flax seeds, onion seeds, salt, chili, turmeric, cardamom and cloves, jaggery in the mix of olive oil and mustard oil.
Plus Kasturi methi, dry curry leaves.
Finally, garnish with a sprinkle of toasted poppy seeds and sesame seeds or with coconut flakes to get the feel of snow on the table.
This time I made it with fresh pineapple slices but thinking of making another batch of this delightful appetizer with grilled pineapples, apples, peaches in another batch. Feel free to add a handful of fresh or dry cranberries, raisins, apricots, amla, coconut, and veggies of your choice.
Do experiment and share your version with me and would love to try your creations!
Have a great week!
