Pickled red onions are the perfect way to add tang to any simple dish or salad. Try them with grilled chicken, steak, fish or just tossed over a salad.
  • 1 glass jar, cleaned
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¾ cup (180ml) white vinegar
  • 3 tbs (50g) sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 chili pepper, sliced once or more depending on your heat preference
  • 3 generous grinds of black pepper
  1. Thinly slice the onion and set aside.
  2. Place vinegar, sugar, salt, chili and pepper in a pot and bring to a boil, making sure sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add onion slices and heat on a low simmer for about 30 seconds.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool.
  5. Place liquids and onion into a jar and refrigerate.
For an even softer brine, try replacing the white vinegar with rice vinegar. The onions will keep in the fridge for several months.
