Whisk vinegar, sugar, salt and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar and salt dissolve. Place blueberries and onion in canning jars or plastic containers. Pour the vinegar mixture over, making sure to cover the berries completely. Refrigerate overnight before using, to allow flavors to develop.
