This is a great, quick onion salad that I often make to use up those half onions remaining from another dish. It retains the onion’s bite yet softens its intensity.  It is such a perfect accompaniment to Indian curries too.

Would you believe that I first made this in 1998? It is also cross posted as part of the retro recipes on our sister site, Heat in The Kitchen.

Sweet Onion Salad with Coriander Spice

ingredients
5 white or red   onions, peeled and sliced very thinly
2 Tblspn coriander seed
salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 Tblspn extra virgin olive oil

method
Pour very hot – boiling water over the onions and let sit for 2 – 3 minutes only. This removes the ‘bite’ of the onions without removing the raw onion taste(sitting longer removes more of the onion’s bite).

Crush the coriander seeds roughly in a mortar and pestle.

Drain the onions very well. Mix the onions with the crushed coriander seeds, salt, black pepper and olive oil.

Cover and stand for 30 minutes.
