Today's Writing Prompt: Learning
What's something you have learned in the past few days?
A couple of days ago I was making a new recipe for a chickpea and tomato salad. The recipe called for chopped red onion. I love onion in everything but I've often noticed that raw onion gives off a very strong smell and effects the taste of whatever it is in within a very short time. This particular recipe suggested soaking the onion in cold water and a few drops of vinegar for 30 minutes before using it in the recipe.
It works. I made the recipe Tuesday and, while the onion is a little stronger now, it is still quite tasty and doesn't effect the taste of the salad much at all.
Imagine if I let the onion soak overnight in the fridge. I bet it would be perfect. I will have to try that.
Stay tuned . . . my next blog post will be the recipe I've been referring too. It is delicious.
