I love flavor additions like these amazingly delicious low sodium pickled onions, that are easy to make and bring big taste to any dish you put them on. We add them to chilis, soups, stews, any dinner imaginable and they bring a ton of flavor with no salt added.

I start by thinly slicing red onions (you could use white or yellow onions too), adding them with some jalapeño for some spice, the adding spices. I love the flavor of extra garlic and onion powder in the brine, but you can add any herbs or spices you love too!

This is one versatile and customizable blueprint for a pickled onions recipe!

  3. Seal the jar with a lid and band, and shake well until the sugar and onion powder are combined.
  4. Refrigerate and use within 2 weeks.
