When I saw these small red onions I was immediately reminded of one of my favourite Italian antipasti, Balsamic Onions. You can make them well in advance as they keep for weeks. In summer they are a great to serve with cold cuts such as gammon or with a barbeque.
I cut these in half to speed up cooking, but small onions look beautiful, served whole. You can add a few sprigs of thyme, particularly if you are going to place them in an attractive jar as a gift!
Soon the end of year summer festivities are upon us. Tapas is the rage now, but I often combine my favourite Spanish Tapas and Italian Antipasti at summer parties on the patio.
I love them with a beautifully barbequed steak!
You can use small white onions instead of red onions!
