You've Gotta Be Kidding Onions

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Sweet onions are marinated overnight in vinegar, then mixed with mayonnaise and seasoned with celery salt. This recipe sounded too bizarre to be true, but once you try it, you're hooked! Serve with saltine crackers. It's a big hit at parties.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Slice onions as thinly as possible, and place in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together water, vinegar and sugar; pour over onions. Cover, and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Drain completely, then mix in mayonnaise and celery salt. Chill 2 to 3 hours. Serve with saltine crackers.

  • Note:

    You must use Vidalia onions, or a very sweet onion like Walla Walla Sweets, Texas Sweets, or Maui onions.
