Green onions, also known as scallions, have a small root bulb with hollow green leaves. They are harvested for their taste, which is milder than most other onions, and are softer in texture, because they are usually fresher. Because of their mild taste, green onions can be a hidden ingredient in many dishes. They will take on the flavor of any dish and can add a subtle zing or be the star of the show by bringing both flavor and color to a dish. Their small size makes them useful as a garnish. They are often used to garnish salads, soups, dips, and other dishes
