  • Combine the apple cider vinegar, juice, and salt in a measuring cup and whisk well.
  • Pack the thin onion slices into a small jar and pour the brine on top. Use a fork to make sure the onions are submerged.
  • Cover and set aside in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before diving in!



These quick pickled red onions should keep for about a week in the fridge in a sealed container. Put them on all the things!
