sand scuplture at Kaanapali Resort Whalers Village Onion FestivalWith many visitors in Kaanapali over the past weekend to enjoy the sweet taste of our famous Kula Maui Onion during the 24th annual Maui Onion Festival, several stopped by my Maui restaurant to share how much they enjoyed my Maui Onion Tacos with Pickled Maui Onion Salsa recipe from last week's catering blog article. Since several of our blog readers asked for more Maui Onion recipes, below you'll find my Maui Onion Summer Roll recipe. I had entered this Maui Onion recipe in an earlier Maui Onion Festival contest. Some may remember seeing this recipe created in person at Whaler's village when I participated in the Kaanapali chef cooking demonstration.

Maui Chef Christian Jorgensen Maui Onion Summer Rolls Recipe Image.If you make the Maui Onion Summer Rolls recipe from above or the Maui Onion Tacos with Pickled Maui Onions recipe, I'd love to hear how your family enjoyed the dish and if you found it easy to prepare. Please share your success with the recipes in the comments section below or on Facebook.

And if you didn't carry home your bag of Maui Onions from the Maui Onion Festival or can't find Maui Onions in your local area to use for either of my Maui Onion recipes, substitute a sweet onion available in your area. A Vidallia onion or Walla Walla onion should work almost as well as our famous Kula Maui onion!
