Woohoo! Grilling season can officially begin now that Vidalia Sweet Onions are in season! There’s something about grilling and Sweet Onions that just fits. Grilled on kabobs with other veggies, grilled for topping your burger, even grilled as a thick slab that is topped with cheese for a vegetarian sandwich – the Grilled-Onion Cheese “burger.” Grilling and sautéing mellows the intensity of Sweet Onions and lets their sweetness shine through in a balanced way with their natural savoriness.
Raw Vidalia Sweet Onions are great even if they don’t make it to the grill. Vidalia Sweet Onions are excellent on salads and in sandwiches. Why? There is lots of flavor without the full pungency of Yellow Onions that burns your nose and makes your eyes water. Now don’t get me wrong… it’s still an onion and there will be some “bite” to the taste.
