So Easy and tasty! People will think you are a gourmet chef!
Delicious hot, served with an entrée, or cold, these onions add zest to sandwiches. They also add a gourmet touch to a meal. For example, when baking a chicken or parts, put one onion per person in the same pan, as well as a potato, and half way through, some whole mushrooms.

Sprinkle rice vinegar on the beans before serving.

Blend extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar together, the amount depending on the number of onions, roughly half TBS oil and a TBS vinegar per onion, and dribble it over the cut up onions. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste. Salt if you must but it is not needed. Sprinkle with finely chopped fresh parsley. Dried parsley isn't the same.
