What’s The Difference Between A Vidalia Onion And A Regular Onion?

I have a recipe for Vidalia Onion Dip. I can’t find them at the store. Can I substitute with yellow onion or white onion?

    You can substitute yellow onion. If your store has any other type of onion they call “sweet onion”, you can substitute that too.

    Yes, you can substitute with any other type on onion. Vidalia’s are sweeter then other onions. One way to ‘adjust’ for the substitute is to chop/cut/mince (whatever your recipe calls for) your onion, and then sprinkle a tablespoon of sugar on the onions and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. That will allow the onion to absorb the sweetness of the sugar. You can then either rinse and drain the onions or use them as they are with the sugar still on them.
    Now also you can use the red onions which are milder, but not sweeter then the vidalia and would not require added sugar, and the red would also give additional color to your dish. Hope this has helped. Happy Holiday’s to you.
