Pouring Balsamic Vinegar over sliced Onions

Balsamic Pickled Onions

Easy and delicious pickled red onions are as easy to make as they are healthy!


  • Chef's Knife
  • Mason jar or covered container large enough to hold the onion slices.


  • 1/2 cup Peach (or other fruit) Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Red Onion


  • After peeling the onion, cut it in half, then cut each half into very thin slices.
  • Put the onion slices into a mason jar, or container of your choice.
  • Pour the vinegar over the onion slices. Make sure they're mostly covered by the vinegar. Add more if needed!
  • Cover your jar or container and shake the ingredients together so that the onions are well saturated with the balsamic.
  • Refrigerate the onions overnight for best results.


A few helpful tips:
  • Only use RED onions!
  • Slice the onion very thin.
  • Fruit flavored balsamics are best, I've used both peach and strawberry, with very delicious results.
  • Prepare at least a day ahead for best texture and flavor.
  • The onions will keep in the refigerator for a couple of weeks, but you'll eat them up before that!
