Home-Garden Green Onion Flower Buds Salad

Home-Garden Green Onion Flower Buds Salad


I love scallions, they don't form bulging bulbs and are harvested tender, with the white parts that are milder than pungent regular onions.

But, I really like Spring Onions in my garden. If tended to carefully, they won't bolt, and will grow fine tender bulbs for harvesting. However, since I like the onion buds and flowers, I just let them bolt and go to seed.

Since I continuously harvest the young tender green parts anyway while the onion grows and matures, and since I plant them staggered a few weeks apart, I get a regular supply throughout spring and summer.

The buds/flowers are sharp and peppery, with a pleasant bite that doesn't unclog sinuses.

This salad here was thrown together in a hurry, with some radish greens and kale forming the base greens, topped with capers, red radish, mango, nectarine, grapes, plus strawberries from the garden, garnished with these gorgeous and delicious onion flower buds. A simple citrusy-vinaigrette is all it takes to make this salad special.
