Marinated Vidalia Onions

My husband, Raymond, and I grow a large crop of Vidalia onions with our son and daughter-in-law. So it's no wonder onions are always on my menu. Here a light dressing really complements the sweet onions.—Ruby Jean Bland, Glennville, Georgia

    This is a wonderful dressing for vidalias. The carrots added a nice color to the salad. As a side dish, it is great. I have also served it over a romaine salad and on burgers!! Oh my. It's beautiful on burgers. Thank you Ruby Jean and Raymond.

    What a hit. It is outstanding and we have made it again. It's good with everything. Try adding it on your hot dog. Side dish. Anything - alone. Sweet and delicious.
