Pickled Scallions

Pickled Scallions

Scallions are a member of the Allium family, which includes garlic, onions, leeks, and shallots. With a mild onion flavor, scallions are an amazing addition to any recipe. They’re mild enough to be eaten raw or slightly cooked, which preserves their crisp texture, easy to dehydrate, and also to pickle. Combining these with fresh dill and a little green garlic or garlic scapes, creates a delicious “pickle”, great for topping sandwiches, burgers, tacos, eggs and even salads.

Pickled Scallions

About ½ bunch scallions
1 Tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
1 green garlic bulb, finely chopped
½ cup water
½ cup white vinegar
½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp honey

  • Grab a glass jar with a lid. I used an 8-ounce jar with a wide rim.
  • Clean scallions and slice into lengths that will fit upright into the jar. You will want to cut them about ½ inch shorter than the height of the jar.  You can also simply chop the scallions into ½ inch pieces.

  • Place the finely chopped dill and green garlic into the bottom of the jar. Then place the scallions in.  Use enough scallions to fill the jar up.

  • In a small saucepan, combine the water, vinegar, salt, and honey. Heat to a light boil and stir until the salt and honey are dissolved.
  • Remove the brine from heat. Slowly pour it over the scallions.
  • The liquid should fully cover the scallions. Cover the jar and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

  • Enjoy these pickled scallions on avocado toast, on top of burgers or sandwiches, or simply as a garnish on salads. They would also make a great addition to a charcuterie platter or on top of eggs.
