  1. Recipe Instructions Place the onions in a medium saucepan, cover with water, and boil for 1 to 2 minutes. Drain the onions, let cool, then peel off their skins, leaving them whole. Place onions in a glass bowl 3 inches deep and about 6 inches wide. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, and salt; bring the mixture to a boil. Stir the ingredients with a wooden spoon and boil for 1 minute, or until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the vinegar mixture over the onions and add the oregano. Coat the onions well with the marinade. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let onions marinate at room temperature for several hours. Shake the bowl often to distribute the marinade. Serve without liquid as an appetizer or an accompaniment to cold meats such as chicken, turkey, and roast beef. This recipe yields 4 servings.
