1 large red onion
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (do not use vegetable oil)
1 Tbsp. white or rice vinegar
Sprinklings of kosher salt & ground black pepper

Slice the onion into rings as thinly as possible. Separate the rings and place in a large non-plastic bowl, then pour very cold water over. Place in the fridge, covered with plastic wrap, and change the water every hour for 2 hours. Drain well, wipe out bowl, then place back into bowl or use a smaller one.

In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar and salt & pepper. Pour over the onions and let marinate on the counter, covered, for at least 1 hour. Serve.
