  • Thinly slice the onions, leaving them in rings.
  • Carefully place the rings into a pint size mason jar and sprinkle with the salt and other seasonings.
  • Pour the vinegar over the rings to fill the jar and put the lid on.
  • Leave at room temperature for two hours so flavors can meld.
  • Transfer to the refrigerator for up to two weeks (though ours are usually gone in a couple of days!).


Use these on burgers, salads, or even in eggs for breakfast!
