Easy Pickled Red Onions

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

A great substitute for a pickle, and will add "life" to really any dish! Plan ahead the onions have to marinate for a minumum of 2 hours. I only use Kosher salt to make these but you can use about 1-1/2 teaspoons regular white salt, or to taste.
