How to use A&B American Style: Pickled Red Onions

Red onions. They're delicious. We love them raw. We love them in Pepper Sauce. We love them pickled.

Maybe you hear pickle and you think it's a laborious process of hot water baths and time. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THAT WAY!

Here's a QUICK  pickle that is a perfect  topping for  fish tacos and sandwiches.

  1. Boil water
  2. Put red onions in a bowl
