Serving Up Sweet Vidalia Onions
(NAPSA) - Although they can be described as sensational, sweet onions are not an overnight sensation. The mild, sweet flavor of Vidalia onions has been three generations in the making.
The sweet flavor of these onions has even inspired a contest, the Original Sweet Onion Trivia Contest, which runs through Aug. 15. The trivia game features key questions on the history of and facts about the onions. Participants can visit vidalia onion.org to submit trivia answers for a chance to win a trip for four to Savannah, Ga.
The sweetness of Vidalia onions and peaches is best showcased in recipes that are not overloaded with other ingredients. This salad, featuring grilled Vidalia onions, is simple but sure to deliver a unique burst of flavor.
Prepare grill (medium-high heat). Brush sliced onions with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Grill onion slices and peach until tender, about 4 minutes per side. Thinly slice peaches.
For the dressing, simply whisk together Dijon mustard, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
In another large bowl, toss together the lettuce, freshly grilled sliced peaches and onions. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle goat cheese on top. Serve immediately.
