vertically sliced onions?

bamgordon | Mar 10, 2009 01:10 PM

Why would a recipe call for vertically sliced onions? I have several recipes that do and I can’t for the life of me understand what difference it makes. It's much easier (and more attractive) to slice them the normal way, so there must be a reason why the recipe calls for vertical slices specifically. Any insight would be appreciated. Also would love any tips on the best way to vertically slice. Thanks.
