What’s the Difference Between Green Onions and Scallions?
Guess what? They’re actually the same thing! They can be harvested young without a bulb on the end (as pictured above) or allowed to mature and form a bulbous end.
They are available year-round and will be long and thin with a dark green side and a white end. Make sure to buy scallions without broken stems and with bright, white ends for the optimal level of freshness.

- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- juice from half a lemon

- Coat the scallions in the olive oil.
