Soaking the shaved onions briefly in ice water both crisps them up and takes away the burn sometimes associated with raw onions.

Cook's Notes

Slicing Safely
When shaving with a mandoline, the trick is to use the protective guard at the right time. As the piece of produce gets smaller and your fingers draw nearer the blade, firmly press the teeth of the guard into the vegetable, making sure it's secure. Keep a good grip on the mandoline at all times.
