Pickled Red Onions

These pickled red onions are the Bomb! They are sweet, tart and a little sour
that packs a punch as a topping to any grilled, roasted, braised, fried, sautéed
or poached meat, seafood, sandwich, taco, burger, composite salad, or veggie
dish….I kid you not! So easy to make. They will last in the fridge for a
couple of weeks, just make sure marinade covers them and they are in a
sealed container…Bonus! Just think about topping them on sliced
avocados….Heaven!

heat the cumin seeds up, don’t burn them and just smell..Aaah! It
