Baked Red Onions with Feta and Walnuts

This side dish recipe, inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi's recipe, celebrates the natural sweetness of the onion. I realize this may be a tough sell with some people, but the red onions are quite sweet, and when roasted they taste even more delicious and make a beautiful topping for a salad with intense flavor.
