Quick Pickled Red Onions
Quick pickled red onions is such an easy recipe and the perfect accompaniment to your favorite meals. The pungent heat from the red onion dissipates overnight into a sweet crunch and a vibrant pink color. Its flavor is as bright as its appearance.
Servings: 1 quart
- 1 large red onion thinly sliced
- 2 cups apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
Whisk vinegar, water, sugar, and salt together in a saucepan and bring the pickling liquid to a boil. Cook until the sugar and salt are fully dissolved then remove from heat and let the brine cool to room temperature.
Place onion slices in a sealed container and add the vinegar mixture until covered. A 1 quart mason jar works perfectly for this.
Let sit for at least 1 hour, but it is best if left in the fridge overnight.
