making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Balsamic Chicken Salad
Ingredients
For the marinade/dressing:
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons unseasoned rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1-2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Remaining ingredients:
6 ounces leafy greens, washed and dried
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 sweet, white or red onion, thinly sliced
8-10 grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1/2 red or yellow bell pepper, cored, seeded and thinly sliced
1/2 cup toasted walnuts
4 ounces Feta cheese
Directions
Make the marinade/dressing: Combine all marinade ingredients in a lidded glass jar and shake well to combine. Remove 1/4 cup of the combined marinade and set aside; you'll use this to dress the salads later.

Place chicken breasts in a large resealable plastic bag and add the remaining marinade (that's not reserved for the salad dressing) to the bag. Seal the bag and shake so the marinade covers all sides of the chicken. Refrigerate for one hour.

After the chicken has been resting in the marinade for an hour, preheat a grill or grill pan to medium. Grill chicken for 10 minutes, flipping once in the middle. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Slice the chicken into strips crosswise.

To assemble the salads, arrange greens in two serving bowls, distributing evenly. Add chicken, onion, tomatoes, peppers, nuts and Feta. Drizzle some salad dressing over the top of each salad and serve right away.
