Recently, I had the chance to write a few articles for the Vidalia Onion Committee’s Flavors of Summer website. The Flavors of Summer website has tips, recipes and other resources for whatever you have planned for your summertime outdoor recreation.
Sweet Vidalia onions are a fantastic summer time treat. The sweetness of the onions works so well on the grill that if you haven’t used them on burgers, sausages or mixed with fruit for interesting salsas and other condiments you really should give them a try.
To go along with this years’ harvest of Sweet Vidalia onions is a great Flavors of Summer contest sponsored by the Vidalia Onion Committee. There’s something for everyone in this contest. If grilling is your skill of choice there is a category for you. Other contest categories include Salads, Sides & Desserts, Marinades, Sauces and Salas. And for those who don’t have the cooking skills to compete or your interest is more in crafts or decorating you can take part in the Outdoor Decorating and Entertaining category.
If you need a little inspiration for the contest or your Memorial Day menu here are a couple Sweet Vidalia onion recipes for you to try:
