Fried Onion Salad with Black Olives (Greek Island of Skyros)

Many of us who live on the Mediterranean islands love to island hop when we go on vacation.  One of my favorite things to do as I travel is to discover new food and recipes.  Even though the basic ingredients are usually the same from island to island, what is created is often vastly different.  Sometimes, recipes are shared with me and other times I am able to recreate a recipe after trying it just once.  It is something I have always been able to do and, as a cookbook author and cooking teacher, it is one of my favorite skills.  Recently, I visited the beautiful Greek island of Skyros.  Skyros is a small island (80 square miles) with a population of 3,000. While there, I had an amazing dinner of freshly caught fish made into a lovely soup served with onion salad fried in olive oil and lots of black pepper (plus, of course, freshly baked bread, Greek salad and red wine!).  The owner showed me how to prepare the onion dish and I share with you this unusual, but tantalizing salad.  I would recommend serving it with fish, but it will go with almost any meat or chicken dish.  Enjoy!
