This recipe was provided by professional chefs and has been scaled down from a bulk recipe provided by a restaurant. The Food Network Kitchens chefs have not tested this recipe, in the proportions indicated, and therefore, we cannot make any representation as to the results.

Pickled carrots and radishes:

Place the sliced vegetables into 1 cup rice wine vinegar mixed with hot sauce, a dash of sugar, and a dash of salt. 15 minutes in the vinegar should leave the vegetables with a nice crunch. They can be left in the vinegar for an indefinite amount of time, however. The vinegar can be saved and used again later.

Cilantro mayonnaise:

Simply mix the chopped cilantro with the mayonnaise.
