This recipe for pickled red onions is really easy to make and they are super delicious. At first we wasn’t sure where to use pickled red onions – but we quickly realized that they can be used everywhere where we use our cucumber salad or just normal pickles. They go perfectly as topping for burgers or hotdogs. We have also used them as a side dish for cooked pork and beef. The recipe only consist of 4 different ingredients, red onions, vinegar, sugar and some pepper, and it’s so easy to make – you dissolve the sugar in the vinegar, slice the onions and let them soak in the vinegar/sugar mixture for some time and that’s it! Super simple! Besides that great taste, the red onions get a beautiful pink color after some time in the vinegar mixture.
