Juicy heirloom tomatoes and a tangy vinaigrette pair with the sugary-sweet Vidalia onion in this fast and easy Grilled Vidalia Onion Salad.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat charcoal or gas grill to medium heat.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Wonderful salad. I used Walla Walla onion bulbs as I live in Washington state and deleted the eggs due to allergy. The dijon dressing really complemented the salad. I grilled the onions with the root on and then sliced it off before serving. I can't wait to make this salad again.
