    One Onion Equals.... What?

    If I need "1 chopped onion" how many cups would that be, aprx.? 1/2? 1?

    This is why I shouldn't start cooking at 11 p.m.

    OH and when you dice a tomato, you take out the white middle, right?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I would take out the middle myself. As for the chopped onion....I have no clue! It would depend upon the size of onion, I would imagine.

    If you have a med. sized onion it would be about a cup yes.

    Well...I'd think part of it also depends on how onion-y you want your finished dish to be. I tend to put more onions than called for in a lot of recipes. Me likey onions.

    Ok... I took out the white and the seeds. One tomato wascall mushy Oh well. this salad's gonna suck anyway.

    I think a med onion would be about right? I don't know. It just says "1 onion" My mom and her shortcuts... It's a wonder I can read this at all

    I'm with you Spidergrrrrl... the more onion the better!!

    Oh, boy - I can sympathize! Whenever I ask my mom for a recipe, there's never any measurements. Just "a bit of that, some of this - put some of this until it looks right." Of course, everything she makes comes out fantastic. If I'm lucky - when I make one of her recipes it's almost as good.
    She did it!

    Re: One Onion Equals.... What?

    I always use cherry tomatoes on salads, cause I hate them and I get less tomato juice on my lettuce that way

    Re: One Onion Equals.... What?

    If the recipe calls for one chopped onion, I go for the small to med size onions.

    And for the tomatoes I chop up everything including the middle.

    Re: One Onion Equals.... What?

    Well, the problem was that I had a bag of prechopped frozen ones (I HATE chopping onions!). So I wasn't sure how much of that I needed!

    Thank for the tomato info. I was thinking the white part made you sick? But I think I was thinking of the white part (pith?) of an orange.

    one med onion = aprox one cup chopped.

    tomatoes, diced middle if you like it, not if you don't...
