Cheese or charcuterie-based snack boards are never merely cheese or charcuterie. You need pickles, a jam or honey, and other salty, crunchy, and piquant bits and pieces for a truly balanced board to highlight and substitute the main attraction. You will also need a scallion, as well.
We have never missed that special occasion “pickle plate” at grandmother’s house, and each pickle plate had a few small, new scallions in it. It was a part of holiday meals. Not only do spring onions taste amazing, but they are incredibly useful for the body too. Commonly known as scallion or green or spring onion, this Chinese’s most favored ingredient is filled with vital nutrients. The green leafy part of the green onion and the white bulb are both edible.
Most Chinese appetizers have green onions as the main ingredient to them. Besides that, it’s one of the healthiest options you can choose.
Role of scallion or green onion in many snacks
The scallion’s role on a snack board is not unlike a pickled onion’s role-it’s just a more destructive approach. It allows you to enjoy the meat and cheese entirely, and this is very important. You can also directly dip the scallion into a creamy cheese before dipping it into salt, creating a kind of deconstructed sour cream and onion moment.
Whole scallions need very little preparation, just rinse and peel off any yucky outer layers, and trim any wilted ends off. Place it diagonally over the snack board for a subtle visual effect. If you’ve munched your way through the little roots, you can trim off the bitten end and save them for frying. They crisp up into beautiful golden coils, ideal for sprinkling on cheese spreads.
If you need a fancy enough snack or tea time bread, this scallion bread is a super easy no-fail recipe for bread ever. You might think of this as a milk bread packing up more flavors.
Soft as cloud scallion garlic and fluffy cheese bread is always full of flavor. The flavor comes from fresh scallions / green onions. This scallion garlic and cheese bread, which is incredibly easy to make, is the perfect way to use the fresh scallions we get this season.
So give this scallion, garlic, and cheese bread a try next time you’re in the mood for a savory snack or dinner bread!
Improves digestion as well
As appetizers, green-onions are often favored. They are high in protein, so they help digestion easier. You can also combine it with other vegetables for dinner or lunch, but remember to add it either cooked or raw in your daily diet routine.
