Pickled Red Onions ?
Quick pickling is always a simple way to transform an ingredient. Visually, this technique tends to bring out the best in a vegetable, making it look bright and punchy. Plus, it’s simple and easy to do. Coupled with cochinita pibil (or any rich, meaty dish) and it really is a match made in heaven.
- 1/2 cups white wine vinegar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Bay leaf
- 2 small red onions, thinly sliced
- 1 chili pepper (optional)
In a small saucepot, bring the white wine vinegar, sugar, teaspoon of salt, chili pepper and bay leaf to a simmer over low heat. Put the sliced red onions in a small sealable container. Carefully pour the hot liquid over the onions, cover and give it a shake. You may need to lift the lid to release some of the pressure. Every now and then, give it a good shake. Refrigerate to cool.
