Onions, Scallions

The scallion is the first growth from an onion seed.  It is harvested as soon as it has nice green leaves and before the bulb begins to develop.  Scallions are delicious raw as pictured and used for a veggie dip, cut as an addition to a tossed salad, or cut and sprinkled on soups and Chinese dishes.  Select scallions that have bright green, crisp leaves.  If fresh when purchased, they will last almost a week in the vegetable bin of a refrigerator.  See the nutritional chart below.
