Pickle Me Elmo
Have you ever wondered, is a pickle a fruit or a vegetable? Put it simply, pickles are any fruit or vegetable of your choice that is 'cooked' or preserved in a flavored acidic medium, like a vinegar or a brine. Pickled vegetables have to be the most useful addition to any dish. Aside from the possibility of adding some bright colors, pickled veggies add an acidic component to your dishes, brightening the flavors of your overall meal.

Be cautious when pickling, as it can lead to some food borne illnesses. But all warnings aside, we encourage you to pickle any veggies you like, and them add them to your meal prep as you wish! Try any individual or a mix of these, and add them to your Trifecta A La Carte or Classic menu items:
- Beets, radishes, harricot verts, turnips, carrots, cauliflower,
- Rainbow cabbage, zucchini, fennel bulbs, jalapeños, or sweet peppers
