grilled_onionsSummer may be coming to the end, but that doesn’t mean that grilling season ends along with it.  Even here in chilly-ish New Hampshire, we still are grilling dinners outdoors and probably will do so for a month or two longer.  Of course, the regular menu of hamburgers and hot dogs can become quite boring, which makes today’s recipe a delightful treat.  Provided to us by Chef Ray Tang at Presidio Social Club in San Francisco, I am excited to give this recipe a try.  Served with a grilled steak, it could make for a yummy Tapas Monday or weeknight dinner with the family.  When the weather turns unbearably cold, we’ll switching to grilling this indoors.
