Remove the boiled pork heart from the pan, cool and cut the flesh into medium-sized straws.

Step 2: pickle the onion.

While the heart is boiling, you can also pickle onions in time. To do this, peel the vegetables from the husk, halve and cut into half rings. Then put them in a deep plate with prepared marinade. Why mix vinegar, water, salt and sugar. Leave the onion slices in this mixture on 1 hour, that is, about as much as you still have to cook a heart. During this time, the vegetable will be properly pickled and gain so much beloved by many a peculiar island taste.

Step 3: mix the salad with the heart and pickled onions.

Once all the ingredients have been prepared, mix them in one bowl. Do not forget to squeeze the onion slightly from the marinade so that excess vinegar does not get into the salad. Season with mayonnaise, add salt and black pepper to taste, mix well and serve the finished dish to the table.
