Very simple, and delightful. Apparently soaking the onion slices in ice cold water removes the stinging bite of the onions and mellows out the taste so the eyes don't burn; it must have worked because DH didn't hand me his onion slices. Thanks for keeping the volume of salad dressing in line with the portions. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.

This was so easy and good too. I actually used mine in a salad, which worked well. Thanks!

A wonderfully easy and delightful change this hamburger topper is. I increased the dressing by an additional half so as to be able to add a yellow tomato along with the red tomato and onion. These burgers were delicious wrapped in large red lettuce leaves instead be served on buns. This tasty topping is a keeper thanks for the post.
