Quick Pickled Onions for a Taste of Spring

A speedy way to give your main dish meal a spring touch.

Quick pickled onions are mellow and tart with the fresh taste of lime juice and just a hint of savoury sweetness from molasses.

They’re just the thing for an early spring barbecue or any fresh-tasting meal that has a hint of summer. We love them tucked in with fish tacos and as a topper on turkey burgers. They’re great tossed into salads too.

Quick pickled onions are mellow and tart with the fresh taste of lime juice and just a hint of savoury sweet from molasses.

Quick pickled onions are versatile because their flavour has been mellowed by lime juice and salt. So there is none of that strong onion flavour and lingering heat that you get with a regular raw onion.
