Pickled Red Onions are the best and easiest way to add some colour and tang to your food. Red onions are slightly sweeter than normal yellow onions, this makes them easier to use and eat raw. When they are used in Salads, they are eye catching and add a good crunch. Always delicious in Sandwiches. Smoked salmon for example, goes great with pickled red onions, caper cream cheese and rocket. Pizzas you might think is an odd thing to use pickled onions for but they add a different dimension to a simple pizza. And last but not least, Canapés. Pickled red onions are paired perfectly with potato cakes and asian beef slices.
- 1 Red Onion
- 2 Tbsp Caster Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Rice Vinegar
- 1/4 Cup Water
Thinly slice your red onion and place in a bowl. Sprinkle the sugar over the onions and set aside for 5min. In a jug, mix the water and vinegar together. Pour the vinegar mixture over the onions. Make sure there is enough liquid to cover the onions. Let onions sit for 15min. And there you have it, ready to use on what you like.
TIP: Make a big bottle of pickled red onions as they keep well. Make sure to keep the liquid in the jar. After a day they become brighter than ever!
