The buttermilk one's my fave!

When I lived in Cambridge, Mass, whenever we were 'flush', we'd go to a little French restaurant on Mt. Auburn St, and order a bowl of French Onion Soup and wedge of iceberg with roquefort dressing over it. Those were the days!

ITK, a shallot is similar to an onion, but sweeter, and IMO, milder, too. They are on the smallish side and have a brown skin. In my grocery store, you can buy them in packages of about a half dozen. They're in the produce section, usually by the onions and garlic or by the "specialty" dried garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.
