Hubby is eating these straight out of the fridge! We have had them on grilled salmon and burgers and will have them on hot dogs and sandwiches too! We both prefer paper thin rings instead of chopping the onion. There may be a mistake on the recipe, way too much salt and way too little sugar. I ended up with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 4 Tablespoons sugar. And DH is eating them straight from the fridge! I said that again. . . Thank you Bobi Read More

This is a great recipe. I loved it first time I made it - second time I used Apple Cider vinegar instead of the Red Wine vinegar... WAY better. Give it a try - you won't regret it! Read More

I really liked these, but next time I'll make a few changes. I would add less salt and a bit more sugar, maybe two tablespoons. Also, I tried these without steeping first and then after they'd steeped...I would skip it if you enjoy a crisper onion. They were tasty and I plan to refrigerate them until burger-nite in a few days. Thanks! Read More

I love these. I first had these when my sister made them from a popular magazine, and now we love to eat them on pork bbq, hot dogs, and hamburgers. They make everything taste unique and great! I used a little bit less salt in mine but I think the total amount would've been fine. Thanks for the recipe :) Read More

TOO SALTY! I wish I had read reviews before I made this. I love pickled onions, I've made them before but couldn't find my recipe. I tried this and only after I dumped the 1T of salt did I think, "That seemed like a LOT". Too late, I tried to get some of it out but it was just too salty. I did increase the sugar too, thought it might balance it out, but in the end I had to throw this away. I'm disappointed people rate recipes highly and then comment that they made huge changes to the recipe, that rating is deceptive! I trust the star ratings to believe a recipe will be good. This recipe, as it is written, is not good. Read More

I made it exactly as in the recipe and it is tangy but a great addition to a spinach salad with a warm bacon vinaigrette. I also got the warm bacon vinaigrette recipe here too. They are great on sandwiches and even as a tipping on a steak or marinated chicken breasts. Love them. Read More
