Red Pickled Onions are not only simple to make, they are a fabulous addition to any salad or sandwich. Although red onion are generally strong tasting, pickled onions are more mild in taste. Despite the vinegar base, the sweet taste of the agave makes these onions delicious.
Regardless of the flavors you choose to infuse into your onions, rosemary is my preference. I absolutely love rosemary, but basil or hot peppers can change the flavor drastically and turn out just as well.
If you plan to make a Mexican dish, jalapeños would clearly be a good choice. Basil would enhance any onions for an Italian Dish.
If you love onions like I do, and you want to pickle quickly and easily, unlike other pickling processes, try this. Pickled onions last a week to ten days in the refrigerator. Ours didn’t last that long.
