How to Make 2 Different Onion Flower Garnish

Onion flower with olives

       Onion flower can be a nice garnish with many dishes. We can use just one layer of onion for the flower as a bowl, the example in the photo above. Or it can be a nice little bowl for a salad for the single serving with a few layers, the example in the photo below. On the photo below, I served tuna salad sandwich with onion flower with green onion salad.

       I like to marinade onion for the flowers because of taste marinaded onion better than raw onion. The onion flowers are a great garnish for broiled meat dishes, roasted meat, appetizers, marinaded food and many other dishes for holidays.

We need:



Cutting Board

Slice of Bread

  1. Put a slice of bread under onion, this way your onion will stay in place. When we make a flower is important to check where the middle of onion will be on knife’s blade.

2. Make zigzag cuts with the knife around the onion, but only halfway deep.
