This two-ingredient recipe is greater than the sum of its parts. Whip up a batch and stash it in the fridge—you can drizzle it on soup, mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, or rice; or whisk it into your salad dressing for a fresh, oniony hit.


  • 2 bunches of scallion greens 
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil 


1. In a small saucepan, gently simmer 2 bunches chopped scallion greens and 1/2 cup olive oil over medium heat until the scallions are very tender, about 10 minutes. 

2. Let cool 10 minutes. 

3. Transfer to a blender; pulse 1 minute. 

4. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve set over a small bowl; discard solids.

5. Use immediately or transfer to a jar and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
