Atsarang labanos - is a pickled radish. It goes well with my lechon kawali or fried fish recipes. The sweet-sour taste of this condiments really improves the flavor of the food.
I always have this stuff in my refrigerator so that every time I crave, it is always there. Why not try this making Atsarang Labanos?
2 pcs - medium size radish
1 pc - ripe tomato
1 pc - medium size onion (sliced)
1 cup - white vinegar
1 cup - sugar
1/2 cup - salt
1. Peel radish skin then slice crosswise into thin slices.
2. Put radish in big bowl and sprinkle with ½ cup of salt. Mix well and set aside for 30 minutes. Its juice will come out naturally. This process is to remove the pungent taste of the radish.

5. In a bowl, mix vinegar and sugar. Blend well. (Note: You may vary the volume of sugar depending on the acidity of the vinegar.)
