Pickled Onions

My new friend, pickled onions.  These pickles add such tangy deliciousness to  salads and sandwiches.  They go great on burgers.  They add so much delicious to nearly anything they accompany.  Make some today and have them for when grilling season starts. You won't regret it.

Pickled Red Onion
If you substitute honey for sugar it will have a completely different taste. I much prefer the sugar.
1 large onion, finely sliced
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a quart jar mix together vinegar, sugar, olive oil, cilantro, salt and pepper.  Shake vigorously.  Add sliced purple onion.  Let sit at room temp for an hour.  Refrigerate overnight for best taste.  Will keep in fridge for quite some time.
