Notes

Smart Shopping Tips
  • Red onions give salads a dash of color and are milder and sweeter than other varieties. They can also be used in cooking, but they will lose their color.
  • Red potatoes hold their shape better than russets and are a good choice for salads.
  • Choose potatoes without blemishes or sprouts. Reject potatoes with a greenish color.
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • Use any variety of vegetables.
  • Try using thawed, frozen carrots to save time.
  • Any type of vinegar may be used, such as red wine or cider vinegar.
  • Store potatoes in a cool, dark place away from other produce such as onions. Onions give off a gas which will cause potatoes to sprout.
  • Cut onions can be stored in a sealed container for about a week.
