This is a recipe for classic, quick pickled red onions that can be used to jazz up almost any dish. Add to salads, grains, slaws, burgers, curries, and of course the most well-know use – tacos. These are nicknamed Bang-Bang onions after a friend of mine asked for the recipe for “my bang-bang red onions; I’m sure he was referring to the taste but they’re also super quick to put together, and so Bang-Bang onions was born.
I use a mixture of apple cider vinegar and red wine vinegar for flavour and colour, however feel free to play around with what you have in your cupboards here and you may already have a vinegar flavour preference. White wine vinegar works well, as does sherry vinegar, malt vinegar and champagne vinegar.
