Servings: 16


  • 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).
