Pickled Red Onions

Easy recipe
Red Pickled Onions

A quick recipe that will add tang, crunch and gorgeous color to so many dishes. These pickled red onions are made of a few basic ingredients that you probably have in your cupboard right now and can be thrown together in about 10 minutes plus a few minutes of marinating.

The onions.

You can use white or yellow onions but the red onions are so beautiful after they marinate and who doesn’t want a touch of pink on their salad, sandwich or veggie bowl??

You can try different vinegars in this recipe. White vinegar, apple cider or rice vinegar. I used Alvear, an aged Spanish vinegar with savory, nutty, sherry notes and a bright, refreshing acidity. These flavors make it an amazing addition to dressings and marinades.
