How To "Tone Down" Raw Onions

Are you like me, where you love raw onions on your salads and sandwiches, but sometimes they can taste a bit too tangy?

Lifehacker posted a simple solution - one I have been using successfully! All you have to do is place your chopped onions in a strainer and pour boiling water over them. This will take away some of their intense flavor without "cooking" them, so they are still crunchy and taste like raw onions!
