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.

Summer Garden Bruschetta
1/2 loaf of good quality french or sourdough bread, cut into 1/3" slices (about 10 slices)
1 pound summer-ripe tomatoes, chopped
1/2 red, white or sweet onion chopped
2-3 large cloves garlic, peeled and left whole
1/4 cup fresh herbs, finely chopped (we used parsley and thyme, but and fresh herbs you have on hand will work)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat your oven or toaster oven broiler. Make sure the oven rack is positioned in the middle of the oven.

In a mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, onion and herbs. Add oil and vinegar and fold gently to combine. Season with salt and pepper and let rest while you toast the bread.

Place bread slices on a baking sheet and broil for 4-5 minutes, until bread is toasted, flipping once halfway through the cooking time. Remove bread and let rest until just cool enough to handle but still warm.

Rub each bread slice on one side with the garlic cloves. Top each slice of bread with a scoop of topping. Serve and enjoy!
