PICKLED RED ONIONS
1 cup cider vinegar
1 cup water
Up to 3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon peppercorns
4 medium red onions, thinly sliced
Fill a tea kettle with water and put it on to boil.
Combine vinegar, 1 cup water, sugar, salt, and peppercorns in a medium sized bowl. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Place the onions slices in a colander in the sink. Slowly pour boiling water over the onions to slightly wilt them. Drain well and transfer to the bowl with the marinade.
Cover and allow to marinate, refrigerated or at room temperature, for at least several hours. Store in refrigerator.
These good for so many things: on sandwiches, topping pizzas, in Greek salad, or as a side to any Mediterranean dish. I served them last night with this:
Clockwise from onions: yogurt sauce, rice pilaf with crumbled feta, grilled lamb meatball kebab, kalamata olives, and mixed greens sauteed with pine nuts.
