Give it a try. It is very simple recipe and it goes well with meat, on tacos, or in a salad.
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 tablespoon salt
chopped cilantro (optional)
Put onion into a non-reactive bowl.
Cover with hot water for about 10 seconds. Strain.
Put onions back into the bowl. Add lime juice and salt. Mix well.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Sprinkle chopped cilantro on top (optional).
Note: If you skip the blanching you need to refrigerate the pickled onions longer (leave them in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours).
