If you love onions, but find raw onion too acrid, there’s an easy, quick way to tame the bite: pickling.
All you need to make pickled onions is apple cider vinegar, some salt and sugar, water, and a Mason jar.
Drop slices of your onion of choice — red onion adds a gorgeous pop of color to any dish — into the salty-sweet brine and let sit for at least 10 minutes.
