Mild flavored onions typically used as a garnish or as an aromatic in Asian dishes, can be eaten raw or cooked. Unlike other onions, scallions hold their texture when cooked.
Look out for slimy bottoms! Store in a mesh or paper bag to avoid a moisture build-up.
Cut no larger than 1 inch sections, use everything but the hairy bits, when serving raw, be sure to cut finely.
