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 Zucchini Rolls
3 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise into 1/8" strips
1 yellow bell pepper, cored, seeded and thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and thinly sliced
1 medium red, white or sweet onion, sliced into wedges
12 asparagus spears, halved crosswise
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing during the grilling process
Salt and pepper
Preheat your grill or a grill pan to medium.

Arrange zucchini slices on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt on both sides. Let zucchini stand for 15 minutes while you prep the other vegetables.

Toss bell pepper slices, asparagus and onions in a bowl with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

Once zucchini has rested and is pliable enough to bend, make the rolls. With your (clean) hands, arrange 4-5 bell pepper strips, 8-10 onion slices and 2 of the asparagus pieces so that the veggie strips are all lined up vertically. Carefully place the veggies at one end of a zucchini strip and roll up. Secure with a toothpick and leave on a plate to rest. Repeat until all zucchini strips and other vegetables have been used up. Brush rolls with olive oil.

To cook, brush the grill with a bit of olive oil so the rolls don't stick. Place rolls on grill and cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping a quarter turn every couple of minutes. Once rolls are slightly charred on the outside and vegetables have softened, remove from heat and serve immediately.
