Onions come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, but what they all have in common is a wonderful taste.
Whether they are yellow and sweet, like the Southern favorite and classic Vidalia, red and crunchy Greek salad, purple and perfect, or simply a traditional white, onions are a wonderful vegetable. Finding new ways to work onions into your recipes is incredibly simple. Slide some on skewers as part of vegetable kabobs. Dice some as part of a fresh vegetable salsa. Roast some as part of a fresh vegetable side.
Or enjoy them creamed. For recipe inspiration, consider these incredible approaches. If you want to work with what our editors call “Georgia Gems”—that would be those sweet Vidalias—try some Pork Loin Chops with Pear-and-Vidalia Pan Gravy, or some simple Vidalia-Honey Vinaigrette. If you prefer onions on your Thanksgiving table, you can’t beat Stuffing-Stuffed Onions.
