An easy pickle recipe made with salt, sugar, and rice vinegar. If you're like me you can painstakingly arrange them on a bowl for no reason for the 'gram and then proceed to eat them all in like 30 seconds. OCD organization of said pickles definitely not required, add them to gua baos, rice bowls, or any dish that needs brightness.
