  • Yield: Makes 2 to 3 cups

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2008


  • 1 small sweet onion (such as Vidalia), halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup white-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt
  • 1 bunch scallions, cut into 2-inch lengths and slivered lengthwise
  • Ground pepper


  1. In a medium bowl, combine sweet and red onions; add ice water to cover. Soak for 30 minutes, changing ice water once. Drain onions well, and return to empty bowl. In a medium saucepan, bring vinegar, sugar, and salt to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved; pour over onions, and set aside to cool, tossing occasionally. When cool, stir in scallionos. Season with pepper.

    I was a little concerned the onion combo would be too strong. It was perfect. Everyone loved it, even the anti-onion person. I'll definitely make this again. Quick and a nice change from the "usual" steak trimmings.
