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.
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.
Pickled Red Onions are super easy to make, but they can wake up a plate of food like nothing else. Put them on tacos, sandwiches, salads, hot dogs and hamburgers. These are spiced with whole pickling spices and jalapeno peppers.
This recipe is a tad intense to prep. But all the fuss is forgotten when the heat hits the pot — the perfume of the lemons and lovely pink hue that the onions bring to the picture dispel all memory of tedium. This is truly a gorgeous jam.
