A quick and easy recipe for pickled red onions. These are so easy you'll be making them as toppings on everything!
- 1 red onion, sliced thin
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar, water, agave, and salt to a simmer then remove from heat.
Slice the red onion thin along the natural lines of the exterior, then place the slices in a jar. and add in any additional flavorings that you like (I use what I have on hand but you can also go without).
Pour warm vinegar mixture over the onions and let sit at room temp for 20-30 minutes. Cover the jar with a tight lid and store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
