Grilled Vidalia Onions with Herb-Infused Olive Oil

  • 4 large Vidalia Onions, sliced into 1/2 inch thick rings
  • 1/2 cup +2 Tbsp good olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp fresh chives, chopped
  • 1-2 tsp red pepper flakes (depends on how HOT you like it!)
  • Zest of one lemon
  • salt and pepper
 In a small bowl, combine the 1/2 cup oil, herbs, crushed red pepper and lemon zest. Mix gently. Leave the onion slices intact – do not break the rings apart! Brush each side of the onion slices with remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill Vidalias until tender (about 8 minutes per side). Place fully cooked onions in a shallow bowl or shallow serving dish – now you can break them apart! Drizzle the herb infused oil over the cooked onions and let marinate 5 minutes before serving. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
