Pickled red onion is a great side dish that goes well with many dishes, especially during fall season. It is easy to make and you can add a bit of chili if you like. The brine is a classic 1-2-3 brine.

Mix vinegar, sugar and water and the spices in a large pan. Bring it to a boil, and remove from the stove. This is done to dissolve the sugar. Stir a few times. Peel the onions, but leave them whole. Slice them up in thin slices, preferably using a mandolin. Add the onion to the warm brine, and let it all cool off. Store it all in a glass jar in the fridge.
