These grilled onions are always very popular even to non onions-lovers! Slow cooking with vinegar and sugar, they become sweet and soft; a quick pass under the grill and you have a crunchy sweet and sour side dish.

Method Prep:10min › Cook:25min › Ready in:35min
Peel the onions and chop each one into 8 wedges.
Pour the oil into the bottom of a casserole pot (that can also go under your grill); arrange the onion wedges, one close to the other. Mix vinegar, sugar and salt together; pour on top of the onions. Add enough water to cover the onions. Cook on low heat for 20 minutes or until the water has evaporated and the onions are soft.
Transfer the casserole pot under the grill and cook for 5 minutes or until crisp. Serve.
