Serves 4-6 people
Preparation and marinating time 30 minutes plus 6-12 hours for marinating.

This recipe I got from my sister Rose, she is such a great cook.

The Sweet Onion Salad goes so good with turkey burgers, hamburgers, hot dogs, beef on a bun, with pot roast, bratwurst and more.

It takes a bit of planning but it is easy to do.

Ingredients:


  • 4-5 sweet onions, halved then sliced
  • 250 ml or 1 cup of Canadian made Hellman's mayonnaise
  • 60 ml or ¼ cup of sour cream. You can substitute with crème fraîche if you wish
  • 125 ml of ½ cup of fresh chopped parsley
  • 60 ml or ¼ cup of fresh chopped chives (optional)
  • 1 tsp of celery seeds (this is optional, but I love it. It was a great suggestion from my friend Tim)


Ingredients for marinade:


  • 125 ml or ½ cup of sugar
  • 125 ml or ½ cup of cold water
  • 125 ml or ½ cup white vinegar

In a glass or ceramic bowl, mix all the ingredients for the marinade. Make sure the sugar is dissolved. 

Add the sliced onions and give it a good stir. Cover and set in the fridge. Let sit overnight if you can or at least 6 hours.

Once the onions have marinated, remove from marinade and drain well, using a colander.

Mix the mayonnaise and sour cream, then add the parsley. 

Fold in the onions, and you are ready to call in the clan.
