Green onions, also called scallions, are available year round in most markets. They have long and straight green leaves. Both the white base and the green leaves are edible.
Choose green onions that are fresh looking and clean white ends. Store green onions wrapped in a plastic bag and place in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator for up to 5 days.
1 medium green onion equals 2 tablespoons sliced green onions.
Before you chopped your green onions, rinse under cool water.
Using a chefs knife or clean kitchen scissors, cut the root end and discard. Trim about a inch from green tops and discard.
