Sweet Onion & Red Bell Pepper Topping

As soon as the spring Vidalia onions hit the market, this is one of the first recipes I make. I use it on hot dogs, bruschetta, cream cheese and crackers. It is so versatile. —Pat Hockett, Ocala, Florida

    Fantastic! I've made this many times and it goes very fast. It's best on hotdogs and hamburgers. I caught my husband eating it as a side dish.

    Can be used on or with many things. If it calls for peppers, substitute these.
