Make dishes they’ll love simply by adding a little bit of this pickled red onions recipe. It’s so fast and easy to make.
Add all of the ingredients to a saucepan except for the onion, stirring until sugar melts; bring to a boil. (If prefer something less sweet compared to pickled relish, use half of the sugar.)
Lower heat, add the red onion, and stir. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Taste the pickled red onion on some food and see if you like the flavor. If it's too tangy for you, add water to your liking. I used 1/4 cup. Add more sugar and cook until the sugar melts if it is still too tangy, but it's pretty sweet already. Add more vinegar if you want it even tangier.
Use immediately on hot food and store leftovers in the refrigerator, in a clean glass jar, covered tightly. (It should last for months as sugar, vinegar, and salt work well to preserve food.)
