Grilled Green Onions, also called Scallions, are incredibly delicious and the perfect summer side dish. It’s so easy to add a handful to the grill while the main course is cooking. They only take a couple of minutes and will brighten up any plate. I loved grilled green onionss!
If you’re lucky enough to get green onions from your garden, or the Farmers Market, even better!
Inspiration for Grilled Green Onions
I live ten minutes walking or two minutes driving, from the house I grew up in where my parents have a beautiful vegetable garden.
If you’ve been hanging out on my site for a while now, you’ve heard me mention all of the gorgeous fruits and vegetables from this garden before. Well, I recently grabbed a handful of gorgeous scallions and thought they’d make a delicious side dish if I grilled them. (I was right.)
How to Grill Green Onions
It’s so easy!
- Wash and dry the onions.
- If they’re particularly thick, you can slice them in half, lengthwise.
- Drizzle the onions with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Grilled green onions are a fabulous, quick and easy side dish, and they go well with almost anything.
I love having something like this to throw on the grill as the steak or chicken is finishing up its cooking time. Adding the bright green to any plate will brighten it up and make it pretty.

Grilled Green Onions are incredibly delicious and the perfect summer side dish. It's so easy to add a handful to the grill while the main course is cooking, and they only take a couple of minutes!
- 1 dozen green onions (scallions), washed and dried
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- salt and pepper
Cut off a couple of inches from the tops, and if any of the scallions are particularly thick, slice them in half, lengthwise.
Toss them with the olive oil on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Once the grill is very hot, add the scallions and grill each side, just long enough to mark them, about 3 minutes total.
