Hot Tips From Food Network Kitchens' Katherine Alford:

Keep red onions on hand: They're milder than yellow or white ones, so you can eat them raw. Plus, you can substitute them for shallots in most recipes, like the vodka sauce in this Penne With Vodka Sauce recipe. Use 1/2 small red onion for every large shallot.
