Using balsamic vinegar, you can make these delicious and sweet caramelized onions though you can use merlot (as I did – as shown) or other red wine. I call my version Merlot Caramelized Onions. It really depends on your tastes and how you will be using them. Use vinegar if you prefer a little tang. It doesn’t have to be balsamic. You can even do a little both and use red wine vinegar. Both versions are great with steak, chicken, or even mixed with vegetables. I would even add a few to top a salad.
Make this easy pickled red onions recipe either tangy or sweet or both. Adjust it as you desire. You can’t go wrong because included with the recipe is a way of fixing anything you don’t like.

Out of eggs? You can still make this delicious gluten free mayonnaise cake because mayonnaise contains eggs! No additional eggs are needed. Mayonnaise makes moister cakes. Just be sure to use a recipe like this one that has strong flavors like chocolate, cinnamon, lemon, etc. They mask the lemon or vinegar in the mayonnaise.
