I am a red onion lover and, in my world, there may be nothing better than having a cupboard full of red onion opportunities. The pickled onion is one of my very favorite kitchen projects. I get the benefit of the onion, including all of the antioxidants that onions have to offer, and I get the bonus of the apple cider vinegar. My cupboard is literally filled with multiple flavor variations of this onion. I use the onion slices in salads and simply wherever the need strikes me. I use the vinegar in salad dressings and vinegar shots. I love the diversity of flavors this project brings.
All of my pickled onions follow the same simple formula: I add whatever herbs, spices, and fruits strike my fancy. I combine them with sliced red onion. I pour apple cider vinegar over it and let it sit for a few weeks or longer.
That is it!
The onions and the added herbs, spices, and fruit all end up pickled and can get used in your kitchen creations. Of course, in the process, the apple cider vinegar itself becomes a gourmet mastery. If you have not tried this concept, you must implement this immediately. 🙂
As a bonus, all of this apple cider vinegar may even help you lose weight. Yes, indeed! Get some recipe ideas and learn more about apple cider vinegar for weight loss. Use the apple cider vinegar right in these pickled onions to up your apple cider vinegar game!
