After eating a delicious sandwich from No.7 Sub that was topped with pickled strawberries, I was inspired to try my hand at it home. Pickling these sweet berries gives them a tangy, sour-sweet flavor that works well on meat-filled sandwiches. Plus, it's super easy to do and a lot of fun waiting for it to be ready.
