I love these marinated, pickled onions so much! I like to keep then on the counter in a cool "onion bowl" from No Crumb's left. Teri at No Crumb's Left has such great recipes - she is known for her sauces and extras she calls "elixirs".
My favorite marinated, pickled onion recipe is from Natalie at Taste's Lovely. Natalie refers to these onions as a marinated, pickled onion hybrid. Natalie is a young mom of four boys. You should totally follow her on Instagram. I have tried several different pickled onion recipes and hers is my favorite. I eat them as a side or...ON.. so many recipes. Yesterday for lunch, I had had a boiled egg, a half of an avocado, pickled onions and some carrots with hummus. The marinade is great to use for any meat before you grill.
I keep mine on the counter because I eat them pretty quickly and the olive oil gets all hard in the fridge.
You have to try them!
Marinated, Pickled Onions - adapted from Taste's Lovely
- 1 medium red onion, sliced about 1/4 inch thick - using a mandolin works best
- 3/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1Tbsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp kosher salt
Slice the onion and put in a container you will keep the onions in. Use a large measuring cup or bowl and mix the other ingredients. Pour over the onions. Stir to coat. The onions should be covered. These will keep on the counter for at least five days.
