Spring is upon us, at least here in Michigan we can only hope it is! With spring comes growth and renewal. As we begin to sow seeds into the warm ground we imagine the harvests they will boast. With that in mind, I thought I would share some of my favorite spring recipes with our readers to inspire what they might grow and eat in the coming months!

DIRECTIONS:

  • Thinly slice the red onion and place in a low bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, stir the olive oil, red wine vinegar, and dried oregano together to combine well. 
  • Pour the mixture over the onions, making sure they are submerged.
  • Let sit on the counter at room temperature to marinate for at least an hour.
