Quick-Pickled Red Onions

I don’t know why it took me so long to get on the pickled onion train. They’re such a regular part of my diet now that I honestly don’t know what I did before them.

My favorite thing about these pickled onions is that they deliver the fresh-crunch that I appreciate so much in a raw onion, but without the aggressive raw onion flavor. So, yeah, they are maybe the best new food I’ve started making this year.

If you like a sweet pickle, throw a couple tablespoons of sugar into the vinegar solution. You also can add any seasonings or spices you’re into. I like to keep it simple with a salty-pickled flavor.

And also I 10/10 recommend using the microwave to heat up the vinegar. It keeps the vinegar smell contained!
