Quick, easy, and of course, DELICIOUS. I always keep some stocked in the fridge. They are great on salads, sandwiches, tacos, avocado toast, etc.
Thinly slice onions and place them in a large glass jar. Now's the time to add in the peppercorns and bay leaf if you're using them. Set aside.
In a saucepan, combine water, vinegar, salt, and sugar. Heat on the stove, string occasionally until the sugar and salt are dissolved then remove from heat.
You're ready to snack! Enjoy!
