A Mexican style pickle, escabeche is most often found with jalapeños, onions and carrots. My red onion pickle uses the same ingredients, but with just the onions. The result is a bright, tangy, sharp pickle with crunch and character.
Kevin West's simple, spicy carrots were inspired by the many taco stands scattered across Los Angeles, where West lives. He uses the tangy, crunchy carrots as a complement for tacos, and also as an ingenious substitute for bacon in a club sandwich.
