Vidalia onion season is well under way, and we are so excited! Georgia’s own sweet onion is amazingly versatile; when lightly caramelized in the sauté pan, it adds rich, mellow depth to the filling of our quesadilla. Diced raw, it brings enticing crunch and delicate sweetness to the guacamole without overpowering the creamy avocado.
