Scallions (Spring Onions) are used for many different dishes in Thailand. They commonly garnish soups, are used in salads (yum), and sometimes even put into dessert (Khanom Krok).
Preparation: Wash the scallions and cut off the roots. Cut the white bottom of the scallions thin, and as you get closer to the green, cut wider pieces.
Storage: Store scallions in a plastic bag with air inside on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator. They should last at least a week if they’re not wet.
