Reviews for Creamy Sweet Onions
"I LOVE this recipe! I was flippinig through the taste of home magazine several years ago, and came upon this recipe. I tried it, and WOW!!! It has since become one of my favorite all time recipes! Put these onions on a burger and you'll be in love too, I promise!"
"I make this recipe but add sliced cucumbers also. I was searching for a recipe for creamy cucumbers after my husband ate some at a picnic he liked and stumbled along this recipe. So I tried it and he loved it! Never lasts long!"
"I make this recipe frequently for picnics - my best suggestion is to lay the onions in a shallow pan in the fridge so you don't have to worry about the top ones not getting "marinated" enough. These are usually gone but do keep nicely for a few days in the fridge. Yummmmmmm"
