vietnamese "style" pickled carrots and daikon

i got some fun carrots at whole foods the other day.. and I found this recipe here while on pinterest and decided this would be the perfect recipe to to showcase how pretty they are..

when shell saw these carrots she thought i was using rotten ones and decided she woud not be eating anything i made with them.. so i had to convince her they in fact where not rotten but fun and funky.. she rolled her eyes at me and called me strange.. *welcome to my world* ha

once you cut into them the insides are kinda orangish.. but i do think it's pretty and ohh my where they yummy..
