Step 1 - Place sliced vegetables, minced garlic and sliced shallots in bowl and massage in salt and 2 tsp sugar until the daikon softens and liquid pools in the bottom of the bowl, about 3 minutes. Rinse, drain in a colander, and place in bowl. Press vegetables into a 1-quart mason jar and reserve.
Step 2 - Thinly slice dried serrano peppers. In a measuring cup, combine with ½ cup sugar, vinegar, and water and stir to dissolve. Pour over vegetables, pressing down to submerge, then give a quick shake to ensure even distribution and store in fridge for up to 4 weeks.
