What's something you have learned in the past few days?
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 and, while the onion was a little stronger the next day, it was still quite tasty and didn'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.
