    How To Make Pink Pickled Onions?

    My homemade pink pickled onions are the perfect partner for salads, tacos, sandwiches, burgers, curries, chilli con carne and so much more!

    By adding these little beauties to your next dish, you will easily bring a splash of colour to your next Instagram food photo!

    You will kick yourself when you realise how easy and quick it is to make your own pink onions.

    Seriously, all you need is sliced red onionsvinegarsalt and a sprinkle of sugar. It only takes 7 minutes to make but I would give it 1 hour before they are good to eat and will last months in an airtight container. I would recommend a large jar like this:

    Here are some recipes that are great with pickled pink onions:

    Are you ready for a tasty 7 minutes? Trust me, you won’t get in a pickle.

    Top 3 Pickle Tips

    1. Pickling is one of the oldest methods of food preservation and has great benefits for improving digestion.
    2. The traditional way of pickled food uses ingredients such as salt, oil, and dry chilli powder mixed with condiments.
    3. My pink pickled onions are a good source of vitamin C and low in calories.



    1. Add sliced onions (I like to use a mandoline) to a medium bowl. Pour boiling water over so they are covered for 20-30 seconds and then drain. This is to remove the bitterness and to soften the raw onion crunch. Add the onions to a well-cleaned/sterilised glass jar or Tupperware box with a lid.

    2. Add the vinegar, sugar and salt and bring to a boil in the small saucepan on medium-high heat, until the sugar has all dissolved (2/3 minutes).

    3. Add the liquid to the onion follow by the lime juice and let stand at room temperature until cooled. Cover and pop in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

    There’s something exiting about these onions. Adds a little surprise to each dish and sometimes when I’m feeling cheeky I like to add them to a little piece of cheese and gobble the whole lot!
