Scallions, commonly referred to as spring onions, make a great addition to any meal. Whether served cooked or raw, scallions add color, crunch and a unique flavor that's hard to mimic with regular onions. Since they are in season it's only fair you add a sprinkle to your favorite dishes (be sure to use both the green and white parts for extra flavor). Just in case you need a few ideas, here are some great ways of incorporating scallions into your meals:
