Marinated Onions and Blue Cheese

Food on Fridays at Carole's Chatter is all about onions this week. The first recipe to come to mind was a salad my Mom served with steak and potatoes on very special occasions. This just may be the stinkest recipe I will ever post. She served Marinated Onions and Blue Cheese on an iceberg lettuce wedge. Mom said she use to get this salad at a steak house in New Orleans. She found a similar recipe in a Cookbook Encyclopedia from Redbook she had. I remember this set of books always being in the bookcase. If fact they are still there. Although, this is the only recipe I remember her using from the books. The onions actually get quite sweet after they marinate for two days. Don't try to rush the process, they really need the time to marinate and mellow out.

Shown here garnished with a little more blue cheese
