My mom recently purchased some Vidalia onions, and was kind enough to share a few of them with me. I had no idea why she was so excited about them until I looked them up yesterday! Vidalia onions are known for their distinctly sweet and mild taste. During my quick search to learn about them, I came across a few interesting recipes. I tried a variation of Morris Farms’ Sweet and Sour Vidalia Onions and Cucumbers recipe last night, and it turned out pretty well!
Vidalia Onion and Cucumber Salad:
2 c cucumber, grated
1 ½ c Vidalia onion, coarsely chopped
½ green pepper, thinly sliced
¼ c corn
¼ c white wine vinegar
1 T maple syrup
1 T dried dill weed
1 t ground black pepper
3-5 drops of Stevia (depending on sweetness of dressing)
Mix vegetables together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the dressing ingredients together. Combine the two mixtures, chill and serve. This recipe yields 3 servings.
PS If you care to catch a glimpse of the International Space Station, apparently it will be putting on quite a show over the next couple of days!
