Onion Salad with Sesame Oil

A surprise flavour combination.

My friend Franz gave me this recipe, and it is used a lot with left over half onions from other recipes. The combination of Sesame Oil and salted onions is quite amazing.

This salad is a great use of left over half onions, after cooking another dish. A great accompaniment to any meal, I also love it with steamed rice and an Indian chutney.

South Indian Onion Strings Pickled Salad

Hot, tangy, sweet, salty. The perfect quick pickle.

Such a simple dish, but an amazing accompaniment to South Indian food. This is ubiquitous in South Indian cafes and restaurants, and at home. It takes about 2 minutes to make, and will keep in the fridge. Don’t just save it for Indian food, use it in any way you desire. In salads, sandwiches, wraps, for example.

Sweet Onion Salad with Coriander Spice

Use up left over onion with this simple, healthy salad.

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.
