Pickles are the perfect tangy complement to savory dishes, from burgers to BBQ! Most store-bought varieties, however, are high in sodium and tend to be made with other questionable ingredients including preservatives, artificial colors, and added sugar. Even the more natural varieties are typically fermented, which may not be the best choice if you are dealing with Candida or SIBO.

To enjoy that distinctive pickle-y taste without all the bad-for-you additives, try my Quick Pickled Onions! The ingredient list couldn’t get any simpler: just red onions and apple cider vinegar. Use these quick pickled onions to top your burger, salad, or tacos for a burst of sweet-and-sour flavor! Enjoy!
