Review: To the extended disappointment of many of my friends, I use green onions/scallions in just about every dish I come up with. I love the things. Maybe it is a leftover habit from working in a Chinese restaurant for so long. The floral and spicy flavor these shoots add are just what most dishes need to make them pop.

Dominick’s green onion section is usually low on stock when I go grocery shopping. I can’t figure out if this is because winter is the only season that these dirt dwellers don’t grow very well or if it is simply because Dominick’s stock is so good.

I think I’ll stick with the former. These are good, but not the best I’ve had. For instance, I had to vigorously wash my mouth out with water after taking this picture because of the bitter flavor that was left.

It is precisely that subtle bitter flavor that tastes so good when cooked and mixed with other foods, but these scallions could stand to be a bit more subtle.
