Ahhhh, the allium of all alliums! They add tremendous flavor to any dish. Shallots have a sweet flavor that is akin to garlic and onion.
To make a perfect dressing for a tossed green salad, soak finely chopped Shallots in a small amount of balsamic vinegar. Then toss with the greens. Heaven. Also delicious sauteed for a sweeter, more mild shallot flavor.
Store in a cool, dark, dry place.
