How To Make Pickled Red Onions

Panera Steak and White Cheddar Panini Copycat recipe with homemade Ciabatta bread

Pickled red onions take almost 2 minutes to make, and they can be used in oh so many ways. You can enjoy these as a side with grilled meats, on sandwiches, or even in the place of pickles.

I like to slice my onions on a mandolin, but you can use a knife to slice a red onion super thin. Then you will need some vinegar, water, and spices.

You literally combine all of these and let them rest for about 15 minutes before you serve them. They taste better with age, so you may even want to keep these on hand all of the time.

This Panera steak and cheddar panini is easy to make and can be enjoyed at home any time. A couple of flavor-packed ingredients take this toasted sandwich to the next level.

  • Comfort food – Warm, toasty sandwiches with melty cheese hit the spot anytime.
  • Tried and true combination – Roast beef and horseradish is a food marriage made in heaven.
  • Punched-up flavor – Pickled red onions add an acidic punch that works so well with the other ingredients… and they couldn’t be easier to make.
  • Crusty yet chewy bread – Ciabatta is simply superb in this sandwich. It crisps up beautifully on the outside and stays chewy on the inside.
