Green onions can be added to so many different dishes that they can take on any personality you want. They can add subtle flavor or texture to a dish, and be a nearly invisible ingredient—or they can bring wild zest and color to a meal. Tangy green onions are ideal in a Greek salad, while an artful julienne of green onions perfectly embellishes Asian cuisine. You may not think about these small, garnishy onions as storehouses of nutrition, but according to the National Onion Association, these humble vegetables not only contain dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, and other key nutrients, they also have some special qualities that may help protect you from disease. Choose green onions to do your body and your cooking a favor.
