Gastropost-- A Time to Cry...


Hail to the king of vegetables! Where would the world be without onions? Very versatile and full of flavour, onions wear the crown when it comes to cooking. Sure, they might be tear-inducing, but that's nothing compared to how much we'd cry without this key ingredient. National Post`s Gastropost challenged Gastroposters to peel back the many layers that make onions so great. Raw, cooked or caramelized — whether to start a sauce, French Onions soup, top a hotdog, add bite to burgers or play a starring role in your salad, what will leave behind our tears? Of joy, of course.

Yay! My submission made it in today's Gastropost with bits of red onion as a crunchy topping with bite to avocado and grapefruit. Sublime avocado and grapefruit segments simply dressed with finely chopped red onions, a drizzle of good extra virgin olive oil, generous splashes of lime juice, freshly ground pepper and pinches of fleur de sel– smooth creamy goodness countered with citrus notes and little bites of onion and crunchy salt bursts.
