AIP Mexican Escabeche

Paleo On The Go

Posted on September 12 2018

One of my favorite things on a salsa bar in a Mexican restaurant is the escabeche, if they have it of course. Crisp crunchy vegetables, tangy vinegar and seasonings. You can make a batch and store them in the refrigerator for those times you need a little something. Or to accompany your AIP Beef Tacos!


AIP Mexican Escabeche


  • Large Glass Jar with lid
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 2 1/2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 bunch radishes, sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 cups water


  1. Put bay leaves into glass jar. Peel garlic cloves but leave whole and put in jar. Layer carrots, cauliflower, and radishes in jar.
  2. In a pot, combine vinegar, water, salt, and coconut sugar. Bring to a boil on the stovetop then simmer until the sugar has dissolved, about 30 seconds. Pour vinegar mixture over vegetables and allow to cool for one hour before sealing and refrigerating.
  3. It can be eaten as soon as it’s cooled but tastes better the next day.
