This quick pickle recipe comes together in just a few minutes!
Prep Time: 10 Min
– 1 cup balsamic vinegar – 1 cup water – 1 tablespoon salt – 2 tablespoons vinegar – 1 teaspoon garlic mustard seeds
Cook Time: 20 Min
Slice red onions into paper-thin rounds using a mandoline or a sharp knife. We like to use a mandolin slicer with a safety guard, making it easy to slice the onions. You could also cut them by hand. Slice them as thin as possible to pickle quickly.
Combine balsamic vinegar, water, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, occasionally stirring until the salt dissolves. Remove brine from heat and let cool to room temperature.
Place red onion slices in an airtight container. Pour cooled vinegar brine over the red onions, covering them completely. Let stand at room temperature for at least one hour before serving. The longer you leave them out, the more pickled they will become!
