1 small red onion
¾ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (preferably from Morocco)
1 tablespoon Olivelle Miscuglio seasoning
1 to 2 teaspoons Olivelle Prosecco Balsamic vinegar (adjust to your taste)
Start by peeling and thinly slicing the small red onion. You can use a sharp knife or a mandoline slicer for precision. If you prefer a milder onion flavor, you can soak the sliced onions in cold water for 10-15 minutes, then drain and pat them dry. This step helps reduce the sharpness of raw onions.
In a glass or stainless steel bowl, combine the ¾ cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Morocco with 1 tablespoon of Olivelle Miscuglio seasoning. The Olivelle Miscuglio seasoning is a blend of spices and herbs that will infuse the oil with incredible flavor. Mix the oil and seasoning thoroughly until well combined.
To the seasoned olive oil, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of Olivelle Prosecco Balsamic vinegar. Start with 1 teaspoon and taste to adjust the acidity and sweetness according to your preference. The Prosecco Balsamic vinegar adds a subtle sweetness and depth of flavor to the marinade.
Place the sliced red onions into a clean glass or stainless steel container with an airtight lid. Pour the prepared olive oil and balsamic vinegar marinade over the onions.
Seal the container with the lid and shake it gently to ensure the marinade coats the onions evenly. Let the marinated onions sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. For the best flavor, allow them to marinate overnight or up to 24 hours.
Your marinated onions are now ready to use as a condiment or topping for a variety of dishes. Here are some serving suggestions:
- Add them to salads for a burst of flavor and texture.
- Use them as a topping for burgers, sandwiches, or wraps.
- Serve alongside grilled meats or fish for a zesty accompaniment.
- Incorporate them into antipasto platters for a Mediterranean flair.
- Get creative and experiment with your favorite dishes!
