Caramelized Sweet Onion Dressing

Caramelized Sweet Onion Dressing

It’s been a great season for Blooming Glen Farm onions, and as a result we’ve been receiving them steadily in our shares for a few weeks now.  The star of this recipe is sweet onions. Caramelizing the onions enhances their flavor and adds a wonderful component to this salad dressing. As many of us fall back into a school lunch routine, playing around with different salad dressings can keep salads fun and fresh. Check out the farm’s “Salad in a Jar” Recipe Formula PDF. Don’t limit this dressing to salads though- it’s also great on burgers, wraps or grilled veggies.
