These Quick Pickled Onions are vegan-friendly and perfect to add to any recipe. Eat them on their own, and on top of your favorite salad.



1 medium red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp. lemon juice

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. honey

1 1/2 sea salt

1 handful of herbs of choice  (I love using oregano), finely chopped


Combine all your ingredients into a medium-sized bowl and gently stir.  Let the ingredients sit for at least 1 hour and max 3 days before eating.

Use pickled onions to top salads, tacos, in sandwiches, as nacho toppings, and more!


Transfer to a tightly sealed container if you are letting them sit for over 12 hours.

After 3 days, place them in the fridge!

This recipe works well with other ingredients like cucumber, garlic and radishes!
