      That sounds nice SB :) I have never liked cheese and normal onion to be honest, find the onion to be too strong but when I use Pickled Onion's it is alot better :)

      I cannot take onions in any form, fried rings, raw, pickled, whatever. Onions are not my friend, and so I leave them where they are. I love pickles, especially dill or kosher pickles, but onions, I cannot even get pass the smell. I understand they are good for some health reason, can't remember what.

      I was always told that onions are good for you as they clean your blood, not too sure how true it is to be honest, I also remember being told they are good for your heart but again I haven't seen anything to confirm that one.

      I am actually quite surprised that in the poll love has more votes :) so many people I know hate pickled onions and it always seems like I am the only one whom doesn't sometimes :)

      Love! I prefer strong firm ones. The little Silverskin ones are a little soft and sweet for me.

      Hey, about those pickled onions... I'm not sure how different pickled onions are where everyone else lives, but... the ones I've had (and that was quite a few years ago) anyhoo... take a thin slice of "deli-style" ham, spread a bit of cream cheese over the ham, then wrap the ham by folding in each corner, and top w/a pickled onion w/a tooth pick attached to it. Those are soooo good!! Makes me wish I had one now.
