White onions: White onions are a safe choice for all-purpose uses, as you can add them to almost any recipe. Add to fresh salads, pasta salads or your favorite creation using Bertolli® pasta sauce. White onions are the best variety for sautéing.
Yellow onions: Yellow onions are also commonly called brown onions, and are the most popular in the United States. Arguably the best for caramelizing, cooking this variety will yield a nutty, sweet taste.
Red onions: Red onions have less sugar than yellow or white onions, so they are not as sweet when caramelized. Instead, make fresh, thick-cut rings to add to salads, or brush with olive oil and enjoy lightly grilled.
