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.

Sweet and Spicy Rice Salad
Ingredients
1 1/2 cups short-grain or brown rice, cooked according to package instructions and cooled
1 ripe mango, pitted, peeled and diced
1/2 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and diced
1 small red or sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
1 cucumber, peeled and diced
1/2 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
Handful of fresh mint leaves, chopped
Juice from 2 fresh limes
2 teaspoons unseasoned rice vinegar
1 tablespoon neutral-flavored oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Directions
Add diced avocado to small bowl and fold gently with half of the lime juice. This will prevent the avocados from browning as they sit.

Add rice to a large, nonreactive mixing bowl and fold in remaining lime juice, vinegar and oil, making sure to combine well. Add mango, jalapeño, bell peppers, cucumber, onion and mint and fold to combine. Add avocado and fold gently to combine. Let stand a room temperature for at least an hour before serving.
