Juicy heirloom tomatoes and a tangy vinaigrette pair with the sugary-sweet Vidalia onion in this fast and easy Grilled Vidalia Onion Salad.
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
8 Vidalia onion bulbs (about 1 pound)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
12 heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved
2 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
How to Make It
Preheat charcoal or gas grill to medium heat.
Rub 1 tablespoon olive oil evenly over onions. Sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Grill 6 minutes or until well marked and greens are tender, turning occasionally. Cool completely.
Combine Dijon mustard and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, stirring with a whisk. Stir in parsley, tarragon, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Arrange 2 onions on each of 4 plates, and top evenly with tomatoes. Drizzle 1 tablespoon vinaigrette over each salad; top evenly with sliced eggs and minced chives.
