Description

An easy recipe for Mexican Pickled Onions using red onions and lime juice as your base. A very popular condiment in Mexico for tacos & tortas.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 red onion, peeled and thinly sliced into rings
  • 4 limes, juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Instructions

  1. In a glass bowl or jar, add all ingredients and toss to combine.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  3. Taste again before serving and add salt if needed.


Notes

  • The onions will turn into a deep pink color the longer they’re cured in the lime juice. I usually prepare this the night before I plan to serve them.
  • Can be stored in refrigerator, covered for up to 1 week.
