This is a really tasty and simple side dish that has such a beautiful presentation with all of the different colors. I used regular yellow onion because I didn't have any green onions, and I used a lot more onion than called for (personal preference). I cooked this for about 10 min. on low heat, stirring occasionally, while I was grilling my chicken. I served this with Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top (optional) and it was FANTASTIC!! I will definitely be making this one again! Thank you! ~Manda
