Learn how to cut green onions (aka scallions) for any recipe! This step-by-step guide and video covers basic slicing, chopping, and cuts to elevate your dishes with this versatile ingredient.


  • 1 bunch green onions


  1. Remove any outer layers of the green onions that look bad or wilted.
  2. Using a large chef’s knife, chop off the root end and the tough top part of the green end.
  3. Line up the green onions and thinly slice them using a circular motion with your knife. If your recipe calls for green onions or scallions cut on the bias, place your knife at an angle and use the same slicing motion.
