Onions on Orange, oil painting of green onions, by Kim Blair

Have you ever wondered if green onions are really scallions in disguise?

When a recipe calls for scallions I always use green onions... but what's a girl to do when no one revealed the secret that scallions really do exist!  Sure, I heard tales of long skinny scallions strutting their stuff in some supermarkets, but not in any veggie sections I frequent.

The word on the street is that the scallion is the skinny cousin to the shapely green onion... but until I see them side by side I'm not convinced.
