Here's a neat little trick I just recently learned about raw onions. If you like adding raw diced onions to dishes like egg salad, guacamole, and tuna salad but don't relish the harshness of some onions, just deflame them!

Dice your onion however fine you wish and then let them sit in a warm water bath for approximately 3-5 minutes. Strain the water out with a fine mesh strainer, then add to your dish.

The water should not be any hotter than water from your tap (you don't want to cook the onions!)

It's so nice to be able to use onions in dishes like egg salad now because it adds that great crunch, I just wish I knew it sooner!
