Sweet onion sauce is a sauce that has variations all over the world. One particular version of sweet onion sauce has been growing in popularity, likely due to two factors. Factor one is undoubtedly its flavour. Factor two is that a well-known restaurant chain has been using it on sandwiches and touting it as a low calorie sauce that is a good option for weight-loss. The ingredients list for two-thirds cup of the sauce is long, but most are commonly found in kitchen pantries.

The Onion

The recipe calls for minced white onion. A small white onion should do, since for the quantity of this particular recipe, the chef only requires one tablespoon.

The Lemon

Buy one lemon. It need not be too large. All that is needed is one-quarter teaspoon of lemon juice. Bottled lemon juice could be used, although nothing beats the fresh stuff.

The Rest

Aside from the onion itself and the lemon, the rest of the ingredients come ready to use in either liquid or powder form. Just measure accordingly. They are:

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar 2 teaspoons white distilled vinegar 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar 1/2 cup of light corn syrup 1/8 teaspoon of salt 1 pinch or a few twists of fresh cracked black pepper 1 teaspoon brown sugar 1 teaspoon buttermilk baking mix 1/8 teaspoon of poppy seeds 1 pinch of garlic powder (fresh and very finely minced garlic could be substituted)


Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Heat to a boil on the hob or in a microwave, using a microwave safe bowl. Once boiling, whisk the sauce aggressively; then set aside to cool. That's it. Enjoy!
