Pickled red onions add a sweet tangy bite to any foods they top as well as a beautiful pink color. These refridgerator pickles are fast to make and can be eaten as early as 30 minutes after making!
The longer the onions soak the more flavorful they become as well as softer.
Peel and slice the onion (across the onion) with a knife or mandoline. Slice thickness may be paper thin to 1/4-inch thick based on preference.
In a small sauce pan, combine the vinegar, salt and sugar, stirring just until the salt and sugar dissolve (1-2 minutes). Remove from heat and add the garlic clove and peppercorns.
Place sliced onions in a glass jar, pour brine over the onions, seal and place in the refrigerator for minimum 30 minutes before eating. The onions may be stored in the refridgerator, sealed, up to several weeks.
