This looks delicious! Not a huge fan of onions, but willing to give it a shot.

Would you be willing to give voting in the pie contest a shot?
Besides, if you cut them thin and cook them well, they get a sweet flavour. Throw some port or brandy at them and cook something from there, like curry! Endless possibilities, mate!
Onions are great, especially when cooked with olive oil. Onions make the best stuff to eat on a funny summer night with some beer and good talk.

Perhaps you like peaches better.....check out the pie contest.
linuxmom (author)  Doctor What7 years ago
Neither was I ......till I found some great recipes!

CONGRATULATIONS LINUXMOM! Tell your son I said Sparta. :-)

Peach Pie! Have you voted in the pie contest.....
linuxmom (author)  Doctor What7 years ago
Hey, even I don't understand it..............the son just happened to be stand there and replied under my name........
Inside joke
GRRRRR.
Looks amazing. I have a variation of this I make with cucumbers.
linuxmom (author)  I Am An Evil Taco7 years ago
Thanks, tastes good too .......Will you share the recipe?
honestly? chop everything finer, add some chopped cucumbers, kalamata olives, and anchovies. It's just about the exact same thing, but I call mine greek salad. I've never tried keeping everything sliced, I'm going to have to try that next time i do this. I'll bet the texture is pretty darn good..
LinuxMom asked me to tell you to please vote. Thanks!
linuxmom (author)  I Am An Evil Taco7 years ago
Sounds like what I call a Persian salad---dice cukes, onions, and tomatoes and dress with either oil and vinegar or lemon juice ( and of course salt and pepper). Perhaps their ought to be a salad contest...............
So do I but I dice everything up. and add more vinegar.

Try using a sweet onion, it will change and enhance the taste in a differnt way.
linuxmom (author)  Mr. Rig It7 years ago
Personally, I like red onions with this salad. Sigh......it was a speed contest .....
