BONUS BLOG – Pickled Red Onions

Happy Friday and welcome to another BONUS BLOG! We like to throw these shorter recipe posts in to highlight techniques or simple recipes that pack a big punch. These Pickled Red Onions do exactly that. They are small but mighty, bringing huge flavor to any dish!

If you’ve been along on this journey with me from the start, you may remember my onion rant in our blog about the Peanut Stew Incident of 2021. Aside from rainbow sprinkles, onions are probably my number one food obsession. They are incredible raw, sautéed or caramelized, but take those scrumptious little veggies and pickle them in a sweet brine and EUREKA, you have a masterpiece!

These Pickled Red Onions will take any dish to the next level. We use them on tacos, sandwiches, quesadillas, salads – literally anything you can think of. You could, for example, add them to our Greek Chicken Pitas for an extra layer of flavor (hint, hint). Play with them! Use them in your own favorite meal and see how they enhance it.

Pre-COVID, we would have people over often, and these were always a hit. On multiple occasions, friends asked for the jar and a fork after the meal was over and just went to town on these bad boys. In fact, this was one of our most requested recipes from family and friends when they learned about this blog. We hope that you will find them just as addicting and always keep a jar on hand, like we do! Who knows, you just might need them for our next post coming out on Tuesday …
