Pickled Red Onion Recipe
Last week I posted my favorite Quick Pickled Cucumber recipe and now I’m posting my favorite Probiotic Pickled Red Onion recipe. Can you tell that I love pickled foods?
Not only is this Probiotic Pickled Red Onion recipe quick to make but it also requires almost no-hands on time. That’s right, keep your stove off, because this recipe just requires resting time. Oh, the power of osmosis…
Why I love this Probiotic Pickled Red Onion Recipe
- This recipe is probiotic, and if you know me, I’m all about trying to source nutrients from food. So probiotic food instead of probiotic supplements? Yes, please! F.Y.I. Probiotics are amazing for gut health and tons of other things (learn more here).
- It’s quick to make. I know I said that already, but seriously do not doubt my need and dedication to quick & easy (yet delicious) food.
- It’s packed full of flavor. No joke, adding these probiotic pickled red onions to any savory dish will take it to a new level (not just taste-wise)! Think nachos, tacos, salads, soups, toast, and sandwiches. Can someone say yum?
Let’s Talk Probiotic Pickled Red Onion Ingredients:
The star of the show in this recipe, the red onion is used for flavor. It also offers prebiotic qualities which can help nourish your gut on top of the probiotics. Yay for gut healthy condiments!
Raw Garlic Cloves
Adds flavor and prebiotic properties to the probiotic pickled red onions. Trust me, you do not want to skip out on this. Also as tempting as it might be, do not sub garlic powder for raw garlic cloves. Trust me on this, the flavor won’t be the same.
Any good pickle is salty! It helps create a delicious brine and pickle flavor that you know and love.
Raw (Unpasteurized) Red Wine Vinegar
Now, this is the important part. If you want this probiotic pickled red onion recipe to be probiotic you have to use raw unpasteurized red wine vinegar. If it’s unfiltered that’s even better. This post isn’t sponsored but here is an Amazon affiliate link to my favorite raw unpasteurized and unfiltered red wine vinegar. It’s honestly so worth it and not too expensive! If you don’t have raw red wine vinegar you can use raw apple cider vinegar but it will change the flavor profile.
How to enjoy Pickled Red Onions
Enjoy these pickled red onion on top of hamburgers, hot dogs, Buddha bowls and more. My favorite way to eat these probiotic raw pickled onions is by blending them into a hummus. Talk about delicious dips…
Probiotic Pickled Red Onions
- 1 red onion (peeled)
- 1 clove garlic (sliced thinly)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup raw red wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
- 1 tbsp sugar
- Slice (or dice, whatever you want) the red onion
- Stuff the red onion into a jar (I used multiple 8oz jars)
- Add in salt and garlic (and optional ingredients if using)
- Pour in raw red wine vinegar until jars are full (you might use a little more or less than a cup). If you want a less potent pickled onion, you may dilute with distilled water (it must be distilled water though to promote probiotic activity)
- Let the mixture sit for AT LEAST 2 hours (even better if you can wait 24 hours) before enjoying!
- Good in the fridge for AT LEAST a week but perhaps longer (use your best judgement).

I remember Red Velvet Cake as this rich, decadent, chocolaty dessert. Which is exactly what I tried to capture in this Red Velvet Cake Chia Pudding. It’s got a deep chocolate flavor with a subtle creaminess from the cashew butter and a slight hint of tang from the lemon juice that gives it a rich feel.
