2 cups
Recipe courtesy José Andrés


  • 1 red onion, sliced into 1-inch matchstick strips
  • 1 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns, cracked
  • 3 juniper berries

To Prepare

  • Place sliced onion strips into a heat-safe bowl and set aside. Mix the vinegar, water, salt, pepper, and juniper berries in a small pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, pour hot liquid over the sliced onions. Cover the mixture and allow to marinate at room temperature for about one hour.
  • The pickled onions will stay fresh for about one month in the refrigerator and make an excellent topping for tacos or sandwiches.
