Pickled Red Onion

Onions. Yum! Pickled Red Onions. Double Yum!

I saw these on three square chef’s blog and knew immediately what I’d make for this month’s recipe swap.  I love these onions on burgers, sandwiches-you name it-but I had never looked into making them before.  It couldn’t be easier and they’re so delicious. Tart and tingily and oniony and slightly sweet. A great addition to really anything! I put these on falafel burgers that I made last night and will post that recipe next week.


Pickled Red Onion


  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sweetener (sugar, honey, etc..)
  • 1&1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 red onion, sliced


  1. Whisk all ingredients except onion in a small bowl until the sugar and salt are dissolved.
  2. Place sliced onion in a jar and pour the vinegar mixture over it.
  3. Let it sit at room temperature for 1 hour or store it in the fridge.

Yield: about 1/2 cup
