How To Make Pickled Red Onions – The Recipe Method

Add vinegar, water, honey (if using), salt and spices in a saucepan or a wide saucepan. Boil it up quickly and remove it from the heat. Sugar and salt dissolve in the liquid fairly quickly, although other spices flow into the mixture, which is just fine.

Allow to cool slightly. The longer you let it cool to room temperature, the crispier your pickled red onion will be.

Add the thin slices of onion and press to immerse under the pickling brine.

Recipe tips and notes

  • Optional spices. You can add whatever other spices you prefer to increase the flavor of your onions. Mix and match and use your favorites. I like to add 1-2 tablespoons to really bring this to life, though they are lovely on their own. Below are some ideas.
  • Mexican pickled red onion. Add 1 teaspoon chilli powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon Mexican oregano, 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes and 1/2 teaspoon bowl.
  • Cajun pickled red onion. Use 1 teaspoon smoked bell pepper, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon oregano and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne, or use 1 tbsp of your favorite Cajun spice mix.
  • Crisp Pickled Red Onions. The heat from pickled brine softens the lies more, so if you are looking for pickled red onions that are more crispy, you should cool the brine further. If you prefer softer onions, immediately add the red onions to the warm pickling salt water.
  • Extra spicy version. If you prefer hot and spicy pickled onions like I do, toss a sliced ​​hot pepper into the mix. The hot pepper infuses salt water and spices the whole batch.

Serves pickled red onions

Pickled red onions add a pop of crunch and zippy seaweed to almost any meal. I personally prefer to serve them on sandwiches, taco, burgers and brats. They are lovely on a deli sandwich or a good grilled roast or Italian sausage.

I have a wonderful recipe for cochinita pibil, which is a delicious Mexican recipe for tastefully pulled pork. Pour the pork over heated tortillas, top it with pickled red onion, and you've found yourself a slice of heaven right there.

Use them as a garnish for sure, but try them in your next salad or as a pizza topping.

That's it, my friends. I hope you enjoy my lightly pickled red onion recipe. Tell me if you make it. I would love to hear how it turned out for you. Keep it spicy!
