These marinated onions have been around for quite a few years and I haven’t gotten around to posting them. So here they are. If you haven’t made them yet, you are missing out badly. They are delicious with everything and they add a punch to salads, starters, sandwiches, vegetable platters, pastas and snacks. So easy to make, so quick and effortless, it will be a shame not to have them on hand in the fridge, where they will keep for about one month. Now that the festive christmas season is upon us, why not give a bottle/can away as a christmas gift. I promise you it isn’t expensive, it looks pretty and it will be truly appreciated.
