Red Onion Pickle

(from Tomato Blessings and Radish Teachings -
  by Edward Espe Brown)

One 6-8 ounce red onion
Boiling water
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
Cold water
1/2 teaspoon salt
Black pepper, Tabasco, or red chili, to taste.

Cut the ends off the red onion and make a slit up one side, so you
can peel back the papery skin and thinnest outer layer of onion.
Cut a small piece off of one side so that the onion will sit flat,
and then slice it thinly into rounds.

Place the sliced onion in a bowl and ocver with boiling water, a
cup or two.  Let it sit for 5-10 seconds, then drain off the water.

Add the vinegar and a half cup or so of cold water to cover the
onion, along with some salt and your choice of pepper seasoning.
Let sit a half hour or longer.  Drain to use.  Or leave in the liquid
and store in the refrigerator.

Used for garnishing salads, adding to sandwiches, or enlivening
vegetable dishes.
