This image of red onions is so beautiful. I remember being in my grandmother's kitchen, chopping onions, and how she loved them as much as I do.

Red onions, sometimes called purple onions, are cultivars of the onion with purplish red skin and white flesh tinged with red. These onions tend to be medium to large in size and have a mild to sweet flavor. They are often consumed raw, added for color to salads, and grilled or lightly cooked with other foods. They may lose their redness when cooked. Red onions are available throughout the year. The red color comes from anthocyanidins such as cyanidin. Red onions come in many varieties but they have one thing in common, they are usually very sweet and can be eaten raw. They are not only used to add flavor but to add beautiful bright color to dishes as well. Red onions are great on cold and cooked sandwiches like a juicy turkey burger. Their sweet mild flavor and their beautiful color makes red onions a great addition to spinach and other fresh vegetable salads.
