Easy Pickled Onion Recipe

This 4 ingredient recipe is my go-to when I want to add extra flavor to a dish. Pickled onions are light, tangy and turn a vibrant neon pink color when they are ready to eat. My favorite things to add them to are breakfast bowls, sandwiches, toast and tacos. Preparing them only takes about 5 minutes!


Easy Pickled Onions


- 1/2 large red onion

- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar

- juice of two limes

- 1/2 tsp sea salt


Using a sharp knife or a mandolin slicer cut the onion into thin strips. Add vinegar, lime juice and salt to a mason jar and stir. Add sliced onions to the jar, cover tightly with a lid and shake until combined. The liquid should cover the onions completely, if not add a bit more red wine vinegar. Place the jar in the refrigerator and let the onions marinate for at least two hours. Once the onions start to turn a pinkish color you are good to go! Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
