Pickled Red Onions

Farm Life, Recipes

Wait until y’all try these! Ever since we planted the garden a few weeks ago, I couldn’t stop thinking about these delicious, zesty, and tangy pickled red onions.

With the jalapeño plants planted, I couldn’t wait to share one of my favorite recipes with you.

My Pickled Red Onion recipe is quick and easy! I love having a jar of these onions in the fridge waiting in the wings for their time to shine. Whether it’s burger night, a barbecue pulled pork slider supper, or some tuna salad for lunch these onions will zest up your meal more than you can imagine.

I hope you love them as much as I do!

Since making these zesty and tangy red onions the very first time, I haven't been able to get enough of them. They have become a staple in our refigerator. They are a great addition to any burger, pulled pork sliders, and recently I've been mixing them up in my tuna salad. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
