  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 1 pinch salt optional


  • You want to have a sharp knife to prevent crushing the onion instead of slicing through it.
  • Wash the onions under water from the faucet or a bowl of water.
  • Cut both ends off of the bunch of onions. The idea is to make them square and to cut off the bitter root end and the not as clean cut top end.
  • Slice through the onion with a smooth rocking motion. The idea is to slice and not crush the onion.
