Even before I started my low carb way of eating a found out that I could stop my migraines in their tracks with some pickle juice.

Making red pickled onions are so easy to make and are one of my favorite things to top salads, wraps and a good charcuterie board.
Pickled onions are popping up topping burgers and salads at all the trendy restaurants. They are something our grandmothers use to make. I don't really know why they ever fell out of popularity in food because they are soo flavory and easy to make.
I loved picking out the pearl pickled onions out of my grandma's mustard pickles. I promise to post the mustard pickle recipe sometime soon because anyone who makes a roast should have some mustard pickles to add as a relish.
