Onions add texture and brightness when used raw; they enrich with a delicate sweetness when cooked. Yellow onions have a complex, herbal, sweet flavor. Red onions are sharp yet gorgeous. Whites are the onions of choice in Mexico for their sharp tang and clean, crisp flavor and texture.


Follow the lead of cook’s in Mexico everywhere who love to add raw onion to many dishes but don’t love the aftertaste: scoop chopped onion into a strainer and rinse well under cold water.
