Quick-Pickled Vegetables

Brighten the flavor of fresh spring veggies with a quick pickle method. Pickling usually takes days or even weeks as the vegetables soak up the brine, but with our fast method, there's no waiting for the vinegar to imbue them with flavor. Briefly cook the veggies in the vinegar mixture until they soak it up and become crisp-tender and mildly pickle-y. Toss with pasta, and enjoy!
