Pickled onion rings in rose vinegar


You'll need

100 ml red-wine vinegar ½ tsp sea salt 1 tsp mild honey 2 long purple onions, cut into thickish rings Splash rosewater To serve: slivered pistachios (optional)

Method

  • 01
  • In a bowl, stir the vinegar, salt and honey until the salt and honey have dissolved. Add the onion rings and toss thoroughly, then leave to macerate for an hour. Just before serving, add a splash of rosewater and, if you like, a scattering of slivered pistachios.

These lightly pickled onion rings are delicious with cold and smoked meats and make a great addition to any salad – especially tomato salads. This is not a pickle to set aside and store – it needs to be eaten soon after it’s made. My greengrocer calls them long purple onions; I use here ‘Tuscan onions’. This recipe is from Turquoise – a Chef’s Travels in Turkey by Greg and Lucy Malouf.
