A medium sized onion with red/purple skin. Flesh is white with red rings. Also known as salad and Spanish onions. Red onions are generally a mild, sweet onion but certain varieties can be more pungent at certain times of the year. Good raw in salads and salsas as well as cooked. To take away some of the pungency when using in a salad marinate in the salad dressing including salt for 15 minutes to an hour or so.
All year round.
