Pickled Cauliflower With Red Onion

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by threeovens

The red onion bleeds just enough to lend a pretty pink color. This would be good alone or as part of an antipasti plate. Pair with meats and cheeses.

This recipe needs a bit of tweaking, but it was quite tasty! I found the vinegar solution was not enough to fill the jar, but that may have been because I didn't pack the veg tightly enough, so then I added more vinegar, so of course then it was too sour, so I had to add more sugar. Nonetheless it was a fun experiment!
