Spanish Roasted Onion Salad!! Easy Recipe!

Posted on

I made this recipe once for a tapas menu and it was a huge hit, yet oh so easy.  It is delicious with the contrast of the sweet roasted onions, tartness of the balsamic and saltiness of the capers.  I hope you enjoy.

Spanish Roasted Onion Salad

6 large onions peeled sliced thickly width wise (red or white onions)


3 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp dried thyme or 1 tsp fresh thyme

2 Tbsp capers drained

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  In a large baking pan oiled with 1 Tbsp olive oil, lay out the slices of onion.  Drizzle the rest of the olive oil and the balsamic vinegar over top.  Season with the salt, pepper and thyme.  Bake for 30-40 minutes until the onions are soft and caramelized.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with capers.  This can be served hot as a delicious side dish.  You can add more balsamic if the onions are very sweet and adjust the salt and pepper seasoning.  It is also delicious cold as a salad or added to a sandwich for a delicious kick.  I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I do.  Cheers, Michele
