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.

Grilled Summer Peach Salad
Ingredients
For the balsamic vinaigrette:
1/2 cup extra balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the salad:
6 ounces baby greens, washed and dried
2 Summer-ripe peaches, cored and cut in half (leave skins intact)
1/4 fennel bulb, cored, outside skin removed and very thinly sliced
1/4 red or sweet onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup sliced almonds
Honey, for drizzling
4 ounces crumbled Feta cheese (optional)
Directions
Make the grilled peaches: Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high and oil the grill. Place peach halves cut side up on a plate and drizzle with honey. Grill, cut side down, for 3-4 minutes, until the honey caramelizes but the peaches are still firm. Remove peaches from heat and set aside to cool for 15-20 minutes. Once cooled, slice the peaches into wedges.

While the peaches are resting, make the vinaigrette. Combine all dressing ingredients in a lidded glass jar and shake well to combine.

To assemble the salads, arrange greens, peach slices, fennel, onion, almonds and Feta (if using) on two serving dishes. Drizzle with dressing and serve right away.
