Quick and easy recipe for pickled red onions. Delicious on burgers and tacos!
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 jar
  • 1 medium-sized red onion (about 1½ cups sliced onion)
  • ¾ cup very hot water
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • ⅛ tsp. crushed red pepper (optional)
  • Bay leaf (optional)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  1. Slice the onion into thin rings and place into a container that has a tight fitting lid. Combine the rest of the ingredients stirring until the sugar and salt dissolve. Pour over the onions, put the lid on and refrigerate. You can wait a day but if you’re impatient like me, you’ll only be able to wait a few hours before digging in. The onions will last up to a week in the refrigerator but ours are always gone by then.
