Red Eye Dancing

I bought this red onion to make a stew, for two reasons--
one being it was the best price and two, because
I liked how it looked. The stew had to wait
for me to photo the onion, taking several
shots and the stew would have had a
stronger onion flavor if I had not used
this kind---I believe it is milder for salads.
But WOW ! what a subject to photo.

I believe, what you have is a Red Vidalia Onion, very sweet and great on salads. Might be a tad mild for a stew, but of course the photo was the real reason for the purchase!!! :)

Red onions, sometimes called purple onions, are cultivars of the onion with purplish red skin and white flesh tinged with red.

These onions tend to be medium to large in size and have a mild to sweet flavor. They are often consumed raw, added for color to salads, and grilled or lightly cooked with other foods.

Red onions are available throughout the year
