Surely they have a particular flavor, generally well tolerated by all , which adds to the dishes , a touch of flavor.
It should be noted that not all of the onions are good for any preparation :
- red ones , generally sweeter , are given for raw salads , or cooked in omelets , sausage , pizza ;
- white ones , more delicate , being less suitable raw, usually use boiled , grilled , pizza ;
- yellow ones , being stronger in taste , but do not use raw in the sauce, the fish soup in the sauce .
