If you have never made pickled red onions at home before, it’s high time we fixed that. This is one of those foods that for many years, it never occurred to me to make. Over time I came to realize how thoroughly I enjoyed pickled onions any time they were part of a dish I had at a restaurant and then I knew it was time to try making a homemade version.
As it turns out, these are unbelievably simple to make and take less than 30 minutes from start to finish. That’s a very good thing because they have become a true fridge staple in my household. I incorporate them into all sorts of meals and sometimes Caroline just eats them straight from the jar. They are a powerhouse item that can add a punch of flavor and bright color to any dish. Tacos and salads are my favorite uses but they are also great on sandwiches, egg scrambles or omelettes, and more. I hope you enjoy having them on hand as much as we do!
