Recipe Notes

To quickly pickle your red onions, thinly slice 1 red onion and place into a large mason jar with ½ cup apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp sugar and  1½ tsp kosher salt. Shake jar vigorously and place into the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Will keep for 2 weeks.

Cook quinoa ahead of time for easy meal prepping.
