Sweet and Sour Frizzled Onion Dressing!

So I have eaten my weight in these salads the last few weeks. It started, of course, after the holidays and I felt like garbage from all the sweets and treats I had eaten. We don't purchase salad dressing because...well I don't like it and it's too expensive. I usually just stick with oil and vinegar but shook things up a bit by making a really delish sweet and sour type dressing.

The salad is simply fresh spinach, chopped clementine, thin sliced red onion, shredded carrot, and Feta cheese. A little tip to make the onions sweeter that I learned in my teenage fast food glory days (Wendy's to be precise) is to soak the onions in salt water (about 1 cup water to 1 tbsp. salt should do) for a bit. It sweetens them up and takes away the bitterness!
Sweet and Sour Frizzled Onion Dressing:
1/3 c. olive oil (I do not use EVOO for cooking purposes)
1/3 c. red wine vinegar
2 tbsp. super fine chopped red onion
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 tbsp. Agave syrup
Salt and pepper salad to taste!
Heat olive oil on medium heat for a few minutes. Add chopped red onion and cook until the onion is a nice golden brown. Take off heat and let sit until room temp. Pour the oil carefully into a jar and add the vinegar, mustard, and Agave. Put on a lid and shake, shake, shake until the mustard has emulsified the mixture. Pour into a fancy shmancy container or just leave it in the jar!
