We use all varieties, just depends on what the recipe calls for or what taste you are going for in the onion. Some of our favorites are Vidalia, red, and green onions.

Yes, I have an onion preference. I prefer not to eat them, because they give my BIG TIME agida!

Guess I'm on the band wagon with a lot of the others.
Love Vidalia's when we can get them, also use a lot of reds and scallions for color and contrast. But when in Maui.....mmmmm.......

Only the yellow for me. I don't care for the taste or the smell of the white ones.
Don't let yesterday take up too much of today. Will

Depends on what you are doing with it. For basic seasoning, good old yellow onion is hard to beat. Sweets are nice but not always strong enough. For salads.. green onion or red onion..

cucumbers and onions, on a hamburger etc. a sweet onion.

On ham and beans, yellow onion, raw..

I go for the sweets first for general cooking. Specific recipes that call for red or something else will get them.

Same here on the sweet onion fancy! I dislike the stronger onions and have sine I was a kid. Leeks are my favorite allium for cooking in their own right while garlic works its way into many of my dishes.
