How to Cut  Green Onions

Green onions, also known as scallions, are a flavorful ingredient that can add a pop of color and taste to a variety of dishes. Learn the basics of how to cut this tasty veggie.

Rinse the green onions under cool running water to remove any dirt or debris, ensuring they are clean and ready for cutting.


Start by trimming off the root end and removing any damaged or wilted parts of the green tops, creating a clean base for slicing.


Cut into coins (round slices). Position your knife perpendicular to the onion and make even cuts across. This is great for salads and garnishes.


Another option: slice the greens into hairs (thin strips). Run your knife parallel with the green onions lengthwise. Ideal for garnishing soups and salads.
