Red Onions

Description

Raw red onions are crisp and succulent with a sharp, spicy flavor. When raw, their eye-catching deep red to purple color makes a pretty and delicious topping on salads, sandwiches, burgers, and pizza. These onions also have many cardiovascular benefits, such as reducing blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Storage

Onions should be stored away from light in a dry, well ventilated area such as a wire basket or woven bag. Store away from potatoes. To store cut onions, keep in a sealed plastic container in the refrigerator and use within a day or two. Do not store near apples, pears or celery.
