Date & Lime Marinated Red Onions

Some TikTok video I found for roasted cauliflower was meh; but these sweet pickled onions she topped it with were – chef’s kiss!

1 lime, zest and juice
2-3 T olive oil
1T maple syrup
3-4 big soft dates, chopped
1 small red onion, thinly sliced (I used a mandoline)
a squirt of cilantro paste, or some chopped fresh cilantro

Zest the lime into a bowl, then squeeze all of its juice into the same bowl. Add 1-2T of olive oil and the maple syrup. Stir to combine. Chop the dates and stir them into the liquid to de-stick them to each other. If you’re using cilantro paste, add it at this point. (If you’re using chopped fresh cilantro, add it last). Stir in your red onions. They will soften and reduce significantly in volume as the acid of the lime juice breaks them down. Salt to taste and your done!
