    I often used chopped green onions (tops) to sprinkle on finished cajun and creole dishes.

    Then I moved on to using them for a variety of dishes, from Thai to Mexican to roasts to ice cream (kidding on the last one, but I'd try it).

    Man, they really make a simple dish look fancy, and they taste a ton better than the usual parsley (which I also like).

    I highly recommend green onions to dress up and "taste up" many dishes.

    We like to call them Scallions. Makes great for simple salads and addons to alot of dishes. I like to use them in alot soups.

    Once you get away afrom the typical white/red/yellow onions, you will find the oinions lesser known cousins are equally as good or better.Next time you hit the fruits/veggie stands, look at buying a cipollini ( red or white ), shallots and try these with the greeen onions tops. You'll be surprise.

    I like to take a green onion and dip the end in salt then just munch on it. After a few bites, dip it in salt again ;)

    Try coating them with olive oil, lightly salt and bake at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes in a preheated oven.
    Let cool and cut with sissors into one inch legnths.

    They are nice and sweet.

    Add to salad of cooked corn and split grape tomatoes with a nice vinegar, olive oil, dijon mustard dressing.
