There are several different varieties of sweet onions. If you’re having trouble finding ‘sweet onions’ at your grocery store you may find them by their names such as Vidalia, Walla Walla, Texas Sweet, Sweet Mayans, or Maui onions.

Other sweet winter citrus such as tangerines, clementines, oranges, or grapefruit would also work in this salad. Just make sure to adjust the amount of citrus you use based on its size.

Optional salad add-ins for even more tastiness: Sliced avocado, chopped dried cherries, dried cranberries, pepitas (or another seed and/or chopped nut that you enjoy), pomegranate arils, or soft goat cheese.
