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 Teriyaki Veggie Kabobs
For the marinade:
1/2 cup soy sauce or tamari
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup honey or brown sugar
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced

For the skewers:
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2" pieces
2 large bell peppers, seeded, cored and cut into 1" pieces
1 large red or sweet onion, cut into 1" chunks
2 medium-sized zucchini, cut into 1/4" rounds
Combine all marinade ingredients in a large non-reactive bowl and whisk well to combine. Remove about 1/4 cup of the marinade and set aside; you'll use this for basting the skewers later when they're on the grill. Add chicken to remaining marinade, toss to coat, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour but no more than 2 hours.

While the chicken is marinating, soak 8-12 wooden skewers in a dish of water so they don't burn up on the grill, or use metal skewers.

Once the chicken is ready, preheat your grill to medium. Thread chicken and vegetables onto skewers, distributing evenly. Grill for 12-14 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking. Remove from heat and serve right away.
