Pikliz, is a combination of spicy, pickled vegetables that every Haitian home has on hand. Carrots, cabbage, chillies and other vegetables are soaked in vinegar creating a relish similar to what Americans refer to as chow-chow. This crunchy salad is served as a side dish in Haitian meals. The flavoured vinegar is frequently used in marinades or to give dishes a spicy-sour punch. In order to celebrate special occasions.
