Quick. Easy. DELICIOUS!

Hello Friends,

Need a last minute gift/hostess idea that’s quick, easy, and delicious? ⁠

This lovely jewel-toned condiment lends a zesty flavor to salads, sandwiches, dips, charcuterie boards and more—while also adding a delightful splash of color. Packaged in a pretty jar, they also make the perfect last minute gift/hostess idea! It takes approximately 10 minutes to make and keeps in the refrigerator for weeks. ⁠

Here’s how to make my favorite Pickled Red Onions. ⁠


  • 1 Medium red onion, about 5 ounces
  • 1/2 TBSP honey
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup rice or white vinegar
  • clean jar or container

Optional add-ons:

  • 1-2 small garlic cloves
  • 4-5 black peppercorns
  • 4-5 all-spice berries
  • 2-4 small sprigs fresh thyme


Peel and thinly slice the onion into approximately 1/4-inch moons.
Whisk honey, salt, vinegar in a small bowl until dissolved. Add the onions and optional flavorings to jar and pour vinegar mixture over. Tightly seal with lid. Can be made and stored in refrigerator a day or weeks ahead.
