What makes an onion a "sweet" onion? Chemically, it has fewer sulfur-containing compounds, which means a higher sugar level than other onions—as well as fewer tears for the cook, so it's sweeter to you. Slice and top a burger or sandwich; add minced sweet onion and your favorite chopped fresh herbs to sour cream for a zesty dip; slice sweet onions and cucumbers thinly and marinate in salt, vinegar, and herbs to make an old-fashioned refrigerator pickle; sauté sweet onions to make them even sweeter and try them on meats, tofu, tempeh, and in egg dishes.
