VIDALIA ONIONS FOR PICKLED VIDALIA ONIONS

Vidalia onions are so mild and sweet you can peel them and eat them just like an apple.  But why not go a step further and make some of my favorite Vidalia onion recipes like hot cheesy Vidalia onion dip, crispy Vidalia onion strings, or a fresh crunchy Vidalia slaw?

VIDALIA ONIONS FOR PICKLED VIDALIA ONIONS

Some foods are so special they have to be protected by the law, like Champagne, Brie cheese, and these amazingly sweet onions. 

Vidalia onions have an official protected status—so you can only call an onion a Vidalia if it’s grown in a specific area of the state of Georgia (the Vidalia hybrid is so sweet because of the very low sulfur in the soil in the regions where they’re grown.) That’s a hint that these onions are pretty great, and worth tracking down.

Don’t worry, they ship these little gems all over the country, but Vidalia onions have a relatively short season that generally runs from April to June. If you’re lucky enough to spot them in your area, grab ’em!  They have a distinctive squat shape, a very thin papery skin, and they’ll be clearly labeled, so read the signs in your produce department.

    Hi
    I am new reader to your blog. I think it is well done and the photos are great. My one complaint is that the ads and pop ups make it difficult to read it. I find myself going back and forth and up and down to even see what the recipes are. It’s so annoying. Any suggestions?

      So sorry Rockyrd, I know it can be frustrating. I’ll ask my ad company if there’s a setting I can change on these long Sunday round up posts so that isn’t so much of an issue, thanks for your feedback!

    I grew up on Vidalia Onions and hardly knew there was any other kind until I was practically an adult! We adore those sweet onions and love all your gorgeous recipes too!
