This is a twist on the super easy Pickled Red Onion, play around with your favorite herbs and spices cloves, chilli, bay leaves, cinnamon, star anise or garlic all work well. These onions are the perfect little addition to uplift any dish. I love adding it to my burgers, tacos, slaws, and even in potato salad for a pop of crunchy contrast!


½ cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup water
pinch of salt
