These onions have the perfect herbal tones to complement a great gin martini or a Bloody Mary. They’re also an essential ingredient in that classic London pub meal, the ploughman’s lunch, or at a French bistro alongside a slice of a pâté grandmère.
A Mexican style pickle, escabeche is most often found with jalapeños, onions and carrots. My red onion pickle uses the same ingredients, but with just the onions. The result is a bright, tangy, sharp pickle with crunch and character.
Pickled onions are one of my favorite toppings for fish tacos, sandwiches, salads and more. I love their pink color and sweet pickled flavor with a hint of spice. Pickled onions are very easy to make at home and they’re a quick pickle!
These pickled red onions are fantastic on hamburgers, hot dogs, mixed in with veggie wraps or falafels, mixed in with salad.... they're really easy to use up! Save the brine when the onions are gone and use it for salad dressing.
What do you pickle in the middle of winter? I want something fresh and bright, but not if the produce is shipped from 5000 miles away. Inspiration came in a bottle of home-brewed stout combined with onions, vinegar and spices. Viola. Winter pickles.
