These are one of the items I prep regularly for the start of the week (along with rice and some beans). It makes for a quick tangy, crunchy addition to any main meal to dress it up.
💦 NO BOILING WATER REQUIRED. And honestly, not a huge fan of a lot of vinegar based ones as they tend to taste too strong for me 😶 these are milder and you can always change up the citrus you have on hand. I use my citrus that is on its way out. 😂
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
Juice of 3–4 limes
Juice of 1 small orange
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
3/4 tsp salt
To a glass jar or bowl, add your onion slices.
With a lemon/lime juice squeezer, squeeze as much juice out of your citrus fruits overtop of the onions.
Add your apple cider vinegar, salt and any extra add-ins you like to the onions.
If using a bowl, carefully toss everything together to coat. If using a jar, seal the jar and give it a few good shakes to distribute the juice and salt evenly (as the onions pickle they will shrink into the juice).
Place the jar in the fridge to sit for at least 30 minutes before using (let it sit overnight and they will turn super pink). You can still taste and adjust the salt to preference once they are ready to eat.
