Let’s Make Pickled Onions:

  1. First, slice the red onion very thin (you can use a sharp knife or mandolin)
  2. Peel the garlic cloves and put them in the bottom of a 16oz glass jar
  3. Place the thinly sliced red onion into the jar on top of the garlic cloves
  4. Put the bay leaf and peppercorns into the glass jar as well
  5. Next, add the vinegar, water, salt and stevia into a small saucepan and place on the stove over medium heat
  6. Heat just until stevia and salt are dissloved. Remove from heat and let cool
  7. Once cooled, stir in the oregano and pour over into the jar until the onions are completely covered
  8. Place the lid on the container and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving

Recipe Tips:

  • Slice your onions as thin as you can, this helps them pickle faster and develop more flavor
  • Store these quick pickled red onions in your fridge (they keep two to three weeks)
  • Add different herbs and spices to change up the flavors – I love to add jalapeños sometimes for a spicy kick
  • Serve in a salad, tacos, or any meal that needs a boost of flavor!
