  • 3 medium sized red onions sliced super thin
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Place sliced onions into clean sterilized jars, pack tightly. (If I'm out of mason jars, I like to use old spaghetti sauce or pickle jars! Just make sure they're well cleaned.)
  • Combine vinegar, water, sugar and salt in a microwave safe glass or bowl and microwave for 1 - 2 minutes, until salt and sugar dissolve when stirred.
  • Pour brine over onions, cover and refrigerate at least two days. When the onions have turned an even shade of pinkish purple, they're ready.
  • Enjoy!


We use a mandoline to slice our onions thin and evenly.  You can see it here: MANDOLINE SLICER
