Spring Onions

Spring onions are, as you might imagine, largely available in the spring, although their season extends into summer in many growing areas. What are they? They are simply regular onions that farmers pull from the field to thin the rows. They can be cooked and used as standard onions or leeks, or, better yet, maximize their tender, sweet flavor by using them raw in salads, salsas, relishes, and garnishes.
