Red Onion and Cilantro Relish

Ok so as the final garnish to my Korean tacos, I wanted to make something with a little crunch to give it a different texture. Red onion and cilantro relish was a no brainer, and SO easy to make.

2 large red onions
half a bunch of cilantro, de-stemmed
2 limes
1 cup of rice wine vinegar

I diced the onion, and threw it in a big non-reactive bowl. After that I added the vinegar, lime juice and salt. Toss, and let sit, tossing occasionally. About a half an hour before serving, add in the cilantro (you don't want it wilt too much), and add to your tacos. The vinegar and lime really dull the sharp onion taste, and it adds such an incredibly light and refreshing crunch to your tacos. I would use this recipe on ANY tacos, and will certainly do so in the future.
