Red Long of Florence Onion Dressing or Marinade

by EmPower

1 Red Long of Florence Onion, chopped
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup olive oil


Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and store in a glass
jar or your container of choice. Allow flavors to meld for 1 hour before use for a better taste.

Pairing suggestions:

  • Salads (lettuce, chicken, bacon, avocado, feta, toasted sunflower seeds)
  • Marinade your favorite meat of choice and grill, keep some dressing on the side for serving
  • Raw veggie dip
  • Wraps

Nutrition Inspiration:
Red Long of Florence Onion has antibacterial and antiseptic properties due to beneficial sulphur compounds. A good source of antioxidants, such as quercetin and anthocyanin, also high in Vitamin C, Calcium and Iron. The green tops can replace scallions in any recipe making this variety a 2-in-1 dynamic duo. The flavor profile is subtler than traditional red onion so you can enjoy this glorious red bulb sliced thinly either pickled or fresh in a salad. I used to love the Sweet Vidalia Onion dressing as a kid until I realized the truth about store bought salad dressings being laden with poor quality oils and sugar. So, with that in mind, I swapped out honey and good olive oil for those less favorable ingredients and used a seasonal favorite from Star Light Gardens: Red Long of Florence Onions! Yum!!
