You Rap Scallion!
Each week, our Sol Flower Farm CSA vegetable box contains a massive bunch of beautiful scallions. Tonight a few folks asked me for ideas on how to use them.
In the summer, I love to make things like egg salad, tuna salad, and chicken salad. I eat scoops of salad wrapped like burritos in big green lettuce leaves (also included in our CSA boxes, conveniently.) Scallions are a welcome addition to all these dishes.
I also love scallions chopped fresh on top of summer lettuce salads, as well as sprinkled raw over in-season vegetables like steamed or boiled zucchini. Recently, I talked up a grilled cole slaw that was full of scallions. If you have a grill, please make it.
Scallions also add zip to homemade salad dressing (olive oil, red wine vinegar + a tablespoon of chopped scallion, plus salt and pepper, is delicious.)
But the question got me thinking about more creative applications. Here are a few additional ideas. I haven’t made all of them, but I would. For you, I would!

1. Garlic Scallion Crusted Chicken - via Paleo Comfort Foods
This nice-looking recipe is 100% Paleo and there’s a great video tutorial. Don’t worry if you don’t have a “Magic Bullet” to chop your garlic, ginger and scallion - just chop it quickly by hand. (Insert snooty commentary about Magic Bullets here. Really? Magic? Knives are the non-magical tools that grownups use.)
2. Thai Scallion Tomato Omelette
Scallions go *great* with eggs. Here’s a Thai-inflected savory omelette recipe; substitute olive oil, bacon fat, lard or coconut oil for the vegetable oil.
3. Scallion and Mushroom Frittata via Martha Stewart (contains cheese)
Again with the eggs.  
4. Paleo Tuna and Avocado Wraps, via the amazing Nom Nom Paleo

5. Thai Marinated Pork Spare Ribs with Dipping Sauce
Yes, that happened a couple times, didn’t it?
That’s what I’m up to in scallionland. What about you?
