DIRECTIONS

  • Using a VERY sharp knife slice the onions as thin as you are able.
  • Place the sliced onions into a bowl and set aside.
  • Use only FRESH lemon juice. Usually 2 medium lemons will have plenty of juice. Squeeze the lemons until you have 1/4 cup juice. Discard the seeds and pour juice into a small bowl. Add the vinegar to the lemon juice.
  • Sprinkle the onions with salt and red pepper to taste.
  • Pour the lemon/vinegar mixture over the onions and gently toss with your fingers until all the onions are wet and the salt and red pepper is evenly distributed.
  • Cover the bowl and allow to sit at room temperature for about 45 minutes. The onion will turn bright pink and decrease in volume.
  • Taste an onion slice. When it's zingy and crunchy and yummy serve with your favorite dish.
