Since you learned about the batching of chopped onions, here’a great recipe using some of them.

This is my favorite salad.  Healthy, delicious and easy to make even from scratch espeically if you already have chopped onions and/or dressing.  If you don’t, make extra chopped onions and dressing to save time later.

  1. Chop ½ onion.
  2. Cut 1 apple into eighths, and slice them thin. Sprinkle with wine vinegar.
  3. Combine 1, 2 and add 1 can tuna (olive-oil packed preferred), and 1 can chick-peas.
  4. Add minced parsley (optional).
  5. Add dressing made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Wine vinegar, Salt and Pepper and mix gently.

Note: For vegetarian version, omit tuna.

For other uses of chopped onions, please refer to the post dated March 27, 2009.

Usage for extra dressing: various salads, dipping raw and steamed vegetables, etc.

Bon Appetit!
