How to Use Pickled Onions
Pickled onions have become one of my favorite garnishes for a meal. They add so much flavor when topped on
nachos or tacos. Way better than plain red onions in a salad. Take chicken salad to the next level. And even great on burgers and sandwiches!
Here is my favorite pickled onion recipe. It’s no fuss, fool proof, quick, and doesn’t require any cooking!
They will last for about 3 weeks in the refrigerator. I like to keep mine in
an airtight container. And as you will see below, there are so many different ways to eat them! Here are 31 ways to use Pickled Onions…
