Delicious Vidalia Onion and Peach Salsa
This delicious recipe for Vidalia onion and peach salsa is terrific with grilled pork chops, burgers, tacos, or plain chips. Like the Maui onion, the Vidalia is renowned for its sweet, mild flavor. Grown around Vidalia, Georgia, this onion helped the Georgia farmers during the Great Depression. Farmers turned to onions in the hope that they could grow a good crop. When they grew, everyone was surprised that they did not have the usual heat that onions were known for.
Eventually, the Vidalia onion became world famous. Today, the Vidalia onion is the state vegetable of Georgia. They are used in all sorts of delicious recipes like the one we share here. Vidalia onions are a good source of vitamin C and they add a lot of flavor to your cooking. When you select onions in the store, be sure to look for onions that feel firm and heavy for their size. This indicates the onions are fresh and juicy. Use your onion within the week for the best flavor.
Onion salsas are so simple to make, yet they make a big impression. Combining the onion with peaches creates a wonderful taste sensation in the mouth. The soft, sweet peaches mingle with the slightly spicy yet sweet, crunchy onions. The tomatoes, peppers and other ingredients help meld these two primary ingredients together, creating a wonderful salsa that works well for dipping as well as serving as a condiment. Try some with your pork chop or burger next time. You will see why the Vidalia onion made Georgia famous.
