Spring is the absolute best time to buy asparagus because it's so cheap! I made a simple side dish of asparagus with caramelized onions over the weekend. I wish I could have snapped a picture of the finished product, but it was gone before I could grab my camera! Usually, caramelized onion recipes call for adding a few tablespoons of sugar. Personally, I think the added sugar is unnecessary because yellow onions are naturally sweet. This side dish is so simple and delicious. Uncomplicated dishes are usually the BEST dishes, don't you agree? Enjoy.
