1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds, lightly crushed

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Put the onions in a medium bowl. Combine the vinegar, sugar, coriander, 2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of pepper in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until the sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Pour the mixture over the onions, cover and set aside until cooled to room temperature.
