If you love quick pickled red onions, you've got to try this quick and easy recipe - just 5 minutes of active time. Many pickled onion recipes call for sugar, but these are honey sweetened - it gives them an extra depth of flavor.
1mediumred onionthinly sliced and separated into rings
½cupapple cider vinegar
1 ½teaspoonskosher salt
Place onion in a bowl (ideally with a lid).
Whisk together water, vinegar, honey and salt until honey and salt are dissolved; pour over onion and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight before serving.
Don't worry if some of the onion sticks out of the brine. In a few hours, the onion will soften and be covered in brine. I like to stir it once or twice during the initial pickling period to coat the onion evenly.
