Spicy Pickled Vegetables
Amongst all the sweets and treats of the holidays, these spicy pickled green beans, pearl onions, jalapeño peppers, and carrots will be an appreciated refresher. The crunchy pickles are delicious with nachos, so place jars in a basket with baked tortilla chips and a jar of salsa (and a note that the pickles should be refrigerated).
