Easy Homemade Pickled Onions
It seems that pickled onions are the ‘in’ thing right now, have you noticed the trend? (Although pickling many different varieties of vegetables is something our ancestors did long ago.)
From sandwich shops to taco trucks, even at the fancy steakhouses, you’ll find those beautiful bright purple pickled onions (say that 10 times) placed on top of your favorite foods.
They are not just for looks either: as pickled onions also add a nice, tangy, sweet flavor to your meals.
Once pickled, the often harsh onion flavors really tone down a notch and take on a milder, zesty-sweet, totally CRAVEable note, likely to become one of your favorite refrigerator condiments.I’m completely obsessed with these pickled onions! I think it’s a GOOD obsession because they are really easy and inexpensive to make at home!
Serve these pickled onions with all of your favorite dishes like tacos, chili’s, sandwiches, salads, or cheese platters.
