  • 1 Kinife preferably a sharp knife
  • 1 Chopping Board


  • 1 Bunch Green Onions


  • This vegetable should be sliced rather than chopped, with the blade of a sharp knife being used for the entire length. Here’s an easy way of slicing scallions, after they have been washed:
  • Arrange a few scallions in a single layer on the cutting surface
  • Place the blade's tip against the cutting surface
  • Gently pull rearward through the scallions
  • Spring onions must not be chopped with pressure as their delicate leaves may be bruised by downward pressure; chopped scallions can be used in a variety of ways, including coins in fried rice, hairs as a garnish for soups, and large chucks for salads.



Don't be hesitant to slice the green onion in half and use it for different dishes, as the white part of the onion has a stronger flavor than the greener part, which has a mellower taste.
