Sweet and Spicy Vidalia Onions

Sweet and Spicy Pickled Vidalia Onions

  • 1 large Vidalia onion
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, or other vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


Thinly slice the onion and  place the slices in a bowl.

Mix the vinegar, salt, cayenne, and sugar together.

Pour the vinegar mixture over the onion slices and stir.

Let the mixture stand for at least 30 minutes before serving.

A tip - if you don't want to eat them in 30 minutes, mix them in a gallon-sized plastic ziploc bag, and store in the refrigerator overnight.

This is great served with steak hot off the grill.  Or chicken.  Really as a side to just about anything.  And try experimenting with the flavors.  If you are having an Asian inspired meal, use balsamic vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar.  Greek?  Try red wine vinegar.  Mexican?  Add some cumin with the cayenne.  The possibilities are mouthwatering!
