1 medium red onion, about 5 ounces
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup rice vinegar, white vinegar, or apple cider vinegar
Bring 2-3 cups of water to boil in a kettle. Peel and thinly slice the onion into approximately 1/8- inch moons.
In the container you will be using to store the onions, add the sugar, salt, and vinegar. Stir to dissolve.
Place the onions in the sieve and place the sieve in the sink. Slowly pour the boiling water over the onions and let them drain.
