Fresh Chopped Green Onions

July 5, 2014 004

I always leave plenty of green onions to overwinter in the garden because, in the spring, it’s a treat to be able to go out and harvest them to add to my salad and/ or salad dressings. Over the years, I’ve created a few short cuts so I have onions ready to go into whatever I’m making.

Chop by hand

If you don’t want to chop the onions by hand, an easier way is to chop them in a food processor – the goal is to chop the greens into small pieces.

The food processor chops the onion into really fine pieces.

  1. Yum! I love green onions, looking forward to creating a garden at our new house so I can enjoy freshly picked foods. Thanks for the ideas on incorporating green onions into a variety of recipes!

  2. Great photos! The corn salad does look delicious! Can’t wait for the recipe in a future post. 🙂
    How long would you say the fresh green onions will stay good in the fridge?

    • I found them to stay in the fridge for several weeks. You can also fill a ice-cube tray with the minced onion and freeze them. When you need a hit of fresh onion just pop a cube out and let it defrost. Don’t fill the ice-cube tray with water – just the onion pulp. I do this with basil and anything else I need a little bit of fresh herbs, veggie or fruit.
