Quick pickled onions made from only five ingredients and made in only one hour! These are great for adding fun color and flavor to a wide variety of meals — especially salads.
I’m so excited to kick off a new series… #EBFbasics. There are so many basic recipes I want to include on the site but sometimes feel silly because they’re so simple. I decided to get over that fact and dive all-in to a series. You’ll have to let me know what you think about this! I feel like it’s these types of recipes that I’m always searching for/looking up so I hope I can be a resource for you!
So let’s jump into #EBFbasics with quick pickled onions. I love all things pickled, but rarely play around with pickling things at home. I’ve done some quick pickled spicy cucumbers but nothing beyond that… until now. Pickled red onions are so flavorful (both sweet and tangy) and I love the pretty pink color.
It’s a great way to add flavor, texture and a fun pop of color to salads, tacos, grain bowls, omelettes, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, egg salad… the list could go on!
The name of this post doesn’t lie – they’re quick! You only have to “pickle” for about one hour before enjoying. I kept this recipe super simple with just vinegar, sugar, and salt but feel free to add more spices and seasonings to your liking (pepper, dill, garlic would all be delicious additions). I can see myself making these weekly just to have on hand.
