Back of An Easy Way to Cut Green Onions At Fabio Viviani's demo in South Beach, I learned a genius new method for cutting green onions. Here's what what you do: Instead of removing both rubber bands, take off the one that holds together the stems of the scallion. Slice off the stems and throw them away. Cut the onions up until the dark green part, which should still be held together by the second rubber band. Most recipes have you discard the dark greens, so toss them in the compost bin and mince the onion according to your recipe. Since watching him do this, I've been slicing green onions following his quick technique. Do you have a chopping suggestion? Share it with us below!

It keeps the delicate greens from getting mangled. If the white part is on the large side, I will half or quarter it while it is still attached. Susannah-Chen 6 years I do the above, too. RoaringSilence 6 years If you have big sharp scissors, you could use those. I mostly do that for flimsy herbs like parsley.
