Ingredients for servings
0.25 cup water
5 tsp light brown sugar
4 tsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp unseasoned rice vinegar see note
1 carrot, matchstick-cut
1 tbsp thinly sliced red chili see note
Combine water, light brown sugar, fresh lime juice, vinegar, and fish sauce in a small bowl, and stir until sugar dissolves.
Stir in matchstick-cut carrots and chili.
Top on tacos, steamed buns, or even burgers.
You can also use apple cider vinegar for a bit more flavor.
Since I didn’t have any fresh chili on-hand, I used some dried peperoncino flakes. Worked out great!
