"If possible use a Vidalia onion or any other sweet onion. If using a regular yellow onion, increase the sugar to 1 tsp. This is great on burgers, sausages and with curry."

I would love to try Vidalia onions...just once to see what they taste like....lol I may have been led astray and looked up a substitute for Vidalia and it came up eschalots ~ which I used. Not a great taste so I added red onions to the mix and it was a lot better. Hubby loved them, just a little bitter for me, (probably the eschalots ) but he had them with sausages, so this made for a great dish for him.

A perfect accompaniment as a topping for grilled sausage sandwiches. It also made for a great topping on burgers. Used 1 Vidalia and half of a purple onion, equaling 2 cups, which I wound-up doubling this recipe. Glad I did because it was Yum! Thank you Luvcookn for sharing. Made it for Billboard tag.

I made some up ahead of time to give the flavors a chance to mix in. I made this special to have with some Italian sausages off the grill. Delicious!!

A real winner and as good as I expected a Luvcookn recipe to be! Loved this Onion Relish, I used it over a grilled sausage for lunch, great on super burgers and yes with a curry dish. I am looking to serving this at our summer cookouts - I know it will impress! Into my recipe drawer for this one. P.S. I was a touch generous with the cayenne pepper!

Amazing what a bit of lime juice, paprika, sugar and a bit of cayenne can do for an onion. I served this relish along side Mwxican mini Meatloaves. Lovely! I will be making this for my Saturday night burgers too. Thaks for posting luvcookin
