Pickled red onions are my favourite condiment, I put them on everything! They add such a nice flavour to salads, tacos, sandwiches and wraps. Sometimes I crave them on their own and will eat them straight from the jar.

I like to make small batches of pickled red onions because you want to make sure it doesn’t spoil. You can keep these refrigerated for approximately one week to a week and a half.

This is a simple and easy recipe which is definitely essential for us busy individuals right. See below!
