I am a salad lover and i love to have onions on them. Having said that , i don’t like the sharpness of the onions, so i prefer to make a pickle out of the onions and  use them on my salads. This pickle can be used in multiple food items like taco toppings, burgers, salads , sandwich etc without overpowering other ingredients. I use different  ways to make different onions pickles which goes with different cuisines. I find this one much suitable with western cuisines.

Below i have shown the spices that i am going to use today.

Cut the onion into half and thinly sliced them.

Put vinegar, sugar and all the spices together in a steel pan. I love using the high grade steel utensils as much as possible since i learn that they do not leach chemicals to the food that i cook(especially when i use vinegar). Let them boil just for a minute to let the sugar dissolve.

Meanwhile, In a canning jar, put all the thinly sliced onion, then  pour the hot vinegar into the jar. Cover the lid and keep it for 24 hours. Your onion pickle is ready.
