  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup scallions, whites only (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients into a small bowl and mix well, refrigerate until ready to serve over tacos.

Pickled Red Onions

For a burst of flavor and crisp texture try adding pickled red onions to your tacos.

  • 1 small red onion, sliced thin
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar (or vinegar of your choice, white and red wine both work great too)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or sweetener of your choice

Slice onions and add to a small pint size mason jar, then in a small sauce pan, combine all other ingredients and cook over medium-high heat until mixture begins to simmer. Pour the hot mixture to cover onions in mason jar, stir well and tighten lid on jar.

***Marinate at least 30 minutes and then serve or refrigerate in mason jar for up to two weeks*****
