Pickled Red Onions

I have been researching how to make some pickled veggies. We have a barbeque coming up and it is going to include a burger bar. I eventually want to try this recipe with all kinds of veggies. Red onions is what I started with. They are so pretty after they have sat in the pickling juice. They get kind of soft and turn a beautiful pinkish red. They make my hubby's burgers look even better. I let mine soak in the juices overnight, we like a little tang to our vegetables. This mixture gave it some of that not a lot but just the right amount. Let me know if you try these and like them.

First slice up your red onion. You can use a mandolin or a sharp knife to get nice thin rings.

I used a mixture of Red Wine Vinegar and Cider Vinegar.

I used a large measuring cup to mix up the pickling mixture.

I put it all in a sealable container and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight.

They are crispy and just delicious.

And looking pretty too!
