Slow roasted onions and thick sweet balsamic vinegar, reduced to a dressing that will rock your world.
Regardless, at first he said garlic, but later he began to lean towards onion. Yes definitely onion now. Garlic is more pungent and onion more mellow.
I’m inclined to agree with the onion decision. Although, then again possibly a jalapeno? I don’t use them as much but I love the heat of those little guys; and I do consider myself pretty spicy. Eggplant? Eggplant is amazing simply grilled with olive oil and seasoning and it’s perfect in so many Indian dishes that I crave.
When it comes down to it the onion is so versatile and…delicious.
It can be slowly cooked over low heat and caramelized to almost a dessert, grilled to add a charred and smoky flavor, eaten raw over fresh salads or turned into dressing. Like this creamy sweet onion balsamic. It is actually really light but the pureed onion makes it seem creamy. This was one of the favorites at a recent pot luck I brought it to.
