What is it?

The crisp texture, mild flavor, and bold color mean red onions are at their best when eaten raw, sliced on a sandwich or burger, chopped for a salad or salsa.

Kitchen math:

1 medium = 8 oz. = about 1-1/2 cups chopped

Don’t have it?

You can use Spanish onions or white onions instead.

How to choose:

Buy firm bulbs with no soft spots, bruises, or other signs of damage. The necks should be tightly closed.

How to prep:

Marinating them briefly in a vinaigrette (or other acidic bath) accentuates their bright purple color.

How to store:

Keep in a cool, dry, well-ventilated spot.
