Sweet Onion Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Potatohead

My mom used to make this salad when she was a caterer. At first, people where afraid of it. However, once a few brave souls gave it a try; it's popularity grew in our small town.

I used 1 orange and half a Vidalia for a quick and economical salad for 1. Serve on a bed of mixed greens with some warm homemade bread and you have a nice light lunch. Thanks for a new favorite! Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring '09.
