Every person I ask this question to is always on one side or the other, there apparently is no in between.
"Raw Onions in salad, yay or nay?"
Growing up, it was up to me to make the salads in our house or we generally didn't have them. There were countless times I would make a beautiful salad and everyone would be hesitant. It didn't click in that not everyone has a preference to raw onion.
Personally, I love raw onion in or on a variety of dishes. Salads are just one of the many meals that benefit from a garnish of raw onion.
Just a note to avoid the awkwardness of people hesitantly eating a dish you laboured over and presented beautifully, serve the onions on the side. Slice them up and serve them on a nice plate on the side of the salad, this way those who enjoy the flavour and crispiness of the onion can simply add it on their own.
This goes for any dish that you may personally enjoy raw onions on, chili veggie dogs, veggie burgers, tacos, just for examples.
Save yourself the grief and keep them on the side. Everyone wins!
Bake your fries according to package directions. Have the herb mix in a large bowl waiting. Toss the fries with the herbs a few times. Drizzle the first TBSP of oil and toss a few times again. Add the second TBSP of oil and give another final toss or two. Serve with light mayo topped with lime zest. DIVINE!
***If you are deep frying the fries, you can remove the olive oil and simply toss the fries with the herb mixture to coat.
BAKE YOUR FRIES! Deep frying is so tempting and they really are delicious from the deep fryer however if you're enjoying them often like I do, you don't want to be eating that much extra fat that often.
