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.

1 small sweet onion, very thinly sliced
2 ounces finely grated Pecorino Romano
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Arrange walnuts in a single layer on a small baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted, about 6-8 minutes. Make sure to keep your eyes on the walnuts as they cook as they will go from nicely toasted to burnt quickly.

Trim the tough ends off the Brussels sprouts. Use the blade attachment of your food processor to shave the a thin as you can.
