Pickled Red Onion Recipe

Updated: Nov 4

I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite parts about getting dressed up is putting on my accessories, aka fun shoes and jewelry.

Putting the finishing touches on my outfit, and stepping out for all the oohs and aahs.

When it comes to food, traditionally, we have called accessories to our food, condiments

I think we should rethink that.

Our food would be plain and boring without the accessories, aka condiments.


Take for instance, pickled red onions.

Pickled red onions are both sweet and sour, vibrant and rich in color, and crunch when you bite into them.

They literally hit all our senses at once.

Put them on salads, sandwiches, eggs, burgers…

Heck! Even eat them right out of the jar they are that good!

You can make your own pickled red onions in your very own kitchen,

Using items straight from your pantry. I promise you!

Here's what you need to make the Pickled Red Onion Recipe:



How to make the pickled red onions:

*Thinly slice the onions, and place the onions in 1 (16-ounce) jar.

*Place the pickling spice in each jar, if using

*Heat the vinegar, water, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar and salt dissolve, about 1 minute.

*Let cool and pour over the onions. Set aside to cool to room temperature, then store the onions in the fridge.

*Your pickled onions will be ready to eat once they're bright pink and tender - about 1 hour for very thinly sliced onions, or overnight for thicker sliced onions. They will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

That’s it!

Pickled red onions are easy peasy!

In about 20 minutes you will have your very own pickled onions that you made yourself!

Now, go ahead and accessorize your meals with these delicious, vibrant pickles and get ready for a burst of flavor!
