Pickled Onions

Prep Time
5 min.

6-8 servings


  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt


  • Combine vinegar, water, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together until sugar and salt is fully dissolved.
  • Place onion in a jar or bowl (I like to use a mason jar). Pour vinegar mixture over the onions and let sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour if you’re in a rush. Preferably, cover jar or bowl and place in refrigerator for at least 1 day. Pickled onions will last for a few weeks stored in the refrigerator.
  • Use pickled onions to top tacos, nachos, sandwiches, salads, and more!

So delicious – you can literally add to anything! The pickling softens the flavor so the onions aren’t so strong and are a great addition to most savory meals.
