Sweet-and-Sour Red Onions

Yield 12 servings (serving size: about 1/4 cup)
Although these pickled onions are tasty on their own, we also liked them on the Roast Pork Sandwiches. You can prepare them up to two days in advance.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups red wine vinegar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups thinly vertically sliced red onion (about 2 large)
