      Place the onion slices and vinegar in a resealable plastic bag, press out as much air as possible, and close the bag.

      Alternatively, place the onion and vinegar in a small bowl and put a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the ingredients so that the onion slices remain submerged in the vinegar.

      Really yummy!! Oops I thought I had red onions but only Vidalia (sweet onions) were left in the cupboard so that is what I used. Not as cute but I'm sure just as tasty if not more as I don't like too spicy an onion. I used a lot less organic apple cider vinegar for religious reasons, a perfectly ripe avocado, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, plus a high-quality extra-virgin olive oil. I may make this again. Made for RAMADAN TAG 2012!

      The marinated onions added a nice pop of flavor without drowning out the natural buttery, tasty avocado. I marinated my onions for almost one hour. I always use Hass avocados because I think they are much better than the Florida variety. If you love avocados, you will love this simple salad! Thanx!

      This was wonderful and really brought out the simple flavor of the avocado. I made this exactly as posted, and had plenty of vinegar leftover. I used it later in a Dijon vinaigrette, and it had a nice touch of onion flavor. This is so easy to do that I will do it often when enjoying my avocados. Thanks for sharing.
