Recipe Type: Green Onion, scallion, vegetale, garnish

Prep Time: 10 min
Total Time:10 min
Yield: 1


1 green onion (scallion)
ice water bath


Cut root end off onion and discard. Starting about 1-inch away from the green stem part, make several lengthwise close together cuts in the white part toward the root end. Cut off and discard the green stalk leaving about a 1-inch uncut section of the white part above the cuts you just made.

Place a plastic twist around the uncut section to hold it together. Place in ice water until ready to use, the thin cuts will flair out and curl up slightly making a brush. Remove plastic twist and serve.
