$100 Winner! Caramelized Balsamic Onion Dressing

Kitchen Play’s April menu included all things onions with the National Onion Association as the sponsor. This is one of my favorite quick and easy side dishes that is great on so many things! I originally created it while visiting my parents to go with some deeeeelicious leftover grilled  Wegmans New York Strip Steaks we wanted on a salad with leftover grilled corn. My friend Carrie told me she makes these all the time to put on her pizzas too. AJ and I tried them on our recent homemade deep dish pizza and it was killer!


  • 1 Large Red Onion
  • Package of Button Mushrooms
Cut up onion and mushrooms, add to a pan sprayed with Olive Oil.
Cook over medium-low heat until begin to color a bit.
  • 1/4 cup good dark balsamic vinegar,
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • salt and pepper
Stir to combine, reduce heat to low and let caramelize, stirring occasionally, 30-40 minutes.
After dark, golden brown (will shrink considerably as well), remove. Mix it with a few spoonfuls of Greek yogurt and serve warm over a large green salad with leftover grilled corn and black beans or sliced steak.

Thank you to Kitchen Play & the National Onion Association for my $100 win!!!!
