Can you substitute a yellow onion for a sweet onion?

Asked by Jianna Sheppard

Can you substitute a sweet onion, such as a Vidalia, for a regular yellow onion in a recipe? You can, but you’ll probably need to cook the onions slightly longer because sweet varieties (such as Vidalias, Walla Wallas, and Texas Spring Sweet) have a naturally higher water content.
