Hanh Dam (Vietnamese Pickled Onions)

“Can't believe a recipe for Hanh Dam isn't in this database! This is a great side to so many Vietnamese dishes. You can use it in salads, in a bowl of Pho, in sandwiches, or just as a side with just about anything. Although these will keep, its best to use them immediately to keep them from becoming too vinegary.”

Directions

  1. Peel and then cut the onion in half. Slice the onion very thinly and place in a glass or ceramic bowl.
  2. Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar, then add to the sliced onions. Make sure you have enough vinegar mix to cover the onions.
  3. Let the onions marinate for at least fifteen minutes, tossing onions occasionally to make sure all absorb the vinegar. Store leftovers in a covered jar in the refrigerator. Use within a few days.
