Pickled onions are so delicious that if you make them once, you will forever have a jar of pickled onions in your fridge. They are perfect to top tacos, nachos, sandwiches, burgers, and you will never want to be without them!
Luckily they are pretty easy to make also. They can be made plain or by adding peppercorns, thyme, jalapenos, radishes, anything you want to give them an extra kick of flavor.
½ tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
1 cup white vinegar
Slice red onion, put in a colander and place colander in sink. Slowly pour boiling water over onions. In a glass bowl or jar, dissolve salt and sugar in vinegar. Add onions (and any other optional spices) and in 30 minutes you will have pickled onions. They are even better after a day in the fridge and will keep for a few weeks.
