Instructions

  • Add to pint mason jar or other container you can cover with a tight fitting lid.
  • Sprinkle salt and optionally sugar over onions.
  • Pour vinegar over onions, cover and shake (or stir) to combine.

Notes

This recipe is so versatile, you can add garlic, any herb you want, change the vinegar etc. Riff on it to find YOUR secret recipe! In the mean time, here's a few recipes that I use them with: mushroom tacos, steak with chimichurri, or a Vietnamese inspired chicken and rice bowl!
