Expert Tips

  • Quick-pickling an onion tames its heat and gives it a beautiful pink color. A pickled onion's flavors go well with grilled salmon, lamb or pork chops.
  • You can cook the beans up to two days ahead, but for the brightest color, don't toss with the dressing until just before serving.
