Quick Pickled onions are a low effort, maximum flavoured summer side dish! The prep work takes less than 5 minutes and the ingredients are simple, clean, and refreshing. I like to make a batch or two of this pickled onions recipe each week, depending what’s on the upcoming meal plans. There is also an option to really spice up your jar. You can add 1/4 of red pepper flakes to start and go from there. I find the mustard seeds are enough, but I don’t love too much heat.
Why is Apple Cider Vinegar good for us?
I’ve become really interested in the health benefits associated with apple cider vinegar. “Apple cider vinegar has various healthful properties, including antimicrobial and antioxidant effects. What’s more, evidence suggests it may offer health benefits, such as aiding weight loss, reducing cholesterol, lowering blood sugar levels, and improving the symptoms of diabetes.” source
Why are red onions good for us?
Onions are rich in antioxidants. “Onions are super-healthy,” said Victoria Jarzabkowski, a nutritionist with the Fitness Institute of Texas at the University of Texas at Austin. “They are excellent sources of vitamin C, sulphuric compounds, flavonoids and phytochemicals.” source Translations? They are good for you, taste delicious, and add beautiful colour to any meal – so eat up!
