  • 1 dozen green onions (scallions), washed and dried
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  1. Cut off a couple of inches from the tops, and if any of the scallions are particularly thick, slice them in half, lengthwise.

  2. Toss them with the olive oil on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  3. Once the grill is very hot, add the scallions and grill each side, just long enough to mark them, about 3 minutes total.
