The Easiest Quick Pickled Onions (Paleo, Vegan)

Quick pickled onions are the best condiment when you need something tangy and crunchy at the last minute. Takes less than 5 minutes to put together!

I debated whether I should post this quick pickled onions recipe or not because it’s just so stupid easy. I thought maybe I should just do an Instagram post with the instructions on how to make it, but I figured I should have a page I can point to people easily when they ask me for the recipe.

So here it is. I’ve been putting these on pretty much everything for the past several weeks. Tacos, open faced sandwiches, sausages, salads, you name it. The crunchiness and the tanginess of the onions just boosts the flavors of anything you put them on. Best of all, it literally took me 3 minutes to put everything together, and the rest is just waiting for the onions to pickle. Anyone can do it!

Of course, I always prefer real lacto-fermented vegetables over quick pickled ones, because of all their probiotic benefits, but sometimes, you just don’t have the time for that. Growing up in a Korean household, we would always have kimchi on the side of everything, so having a tangy condiment with every meal is now so comforting to me.

Before you ask, I’m actually not sure how long this lasts in the fridge. I’ve had mine for about 3 weeks now, and it still looks and tastes awesome. But then again, quick pickled onions are one of those things that just gets better the longer it sits, so use your best judgement! I’m one of those people that eat food way past their expiration date as long as they look and smell fine. And hey, I’m still alive and well.

Since Father’s Day is this weekend, I hope you make this quick pickled onions to put on all the yummy grilled foods. Let me know what you enjoyed it on!

How was your Memorial Day, friends? Ours was so relaxing. We actually had zero plans so we ended up hanging out at home, working on some home projects, and finished up 13 Reasons Why. That show is preeeeetty intense, and deals with some serious issues faced by high school teens. If you’ve watched it like everyone and their uncle has, then you know what I mean. It’s a good one though. I highly recommend it!

Also, I did a LOT of cooking. Our grill was fired up almost every night, which inspired me to put together ideas for some delicious summer recipes. One of them being… these pickle deviled eggs!

Pickle Deviled Eggs
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tbsp paleo mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp pickle juice
  • 2 tsp fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup chopped pickle
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Paprika, for garnish
  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan.
  2. Take out eggs straight from the fridge, then lower the eggs into the water so they don't break, and let it come to a boil again. Once it does, lower the heat, and let the eggs simmer for 11 minutes.
  3. Prepare a large bowl with an ice bath.
  4. Once the eggs are done cooking, place them in the ice bath for at least 15 minutes.
  5. Peel the eggs under cold running water.*
  6. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.
  7. Take out the yolks and place in a bowl.
  8. Add paleo mayonnaise, pickle juice, dill, mustard, chopped pickle, salt and pepper, and mash with a fork until fully combined and creamy.
  9. Fill the egg whites with the mixture evenly.
  10. Optional: Garnish with more sliced pickles and dill, and sprinkle with paprika before serving.
  11. Refrigerate up to 4 days.
*There are many ways to cook hard-boiled eggs, but I found that this method makes the best, easy-to-peel egg without the shell sticking to the whites. If you prefer another method, you can cook it in any way that works best for you!
