Pickled Red onion

I keep a jar of these in the fridge at all times, they go well with most anything! For more quick pickling recipes, definitely check out Foolproof preserving by America’s Test Kitchen!

You will need a small mason jar or glass storage container you can keep in the refrigerator


½ cups apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar (or sugar alternative, our favorite is Monkfruit sweetener)
1 ½ teaspoons sea or kosher salt
1 cup of water
1 red onion sliced thinly


*you can adjust the sugar to your liking, if you like a sweeter pickled onion! Also add in bay leaves and mustard seed to mix it up!

  1. Mix the first 4 ingredients until the salt dissolves.
  2. Fill the jar with the sliced onions then pour the mixture over.
  3. Let sit out at room temp for 2 hours then refrigerate.
