Acadian Salted Green Onions

Sounds Weird, Tastes Much Better

Acadian Salted Green Onions (scallions) are a staple of Acadian cooking. There is no real recipe for salted onions, but the concept is incredibly simple: Add salt to the onions to preserve them.


  • Green onions (scallions)
  • Large grained kosher salt


  • Chop up the green onions discarding the roots.
  • Place them in a large bowl and add enough salt to coat the onions. Toss and add a bit more salt.
  • Let sit overnight then add a bit more salt the next day.
  • Pack your onions into mason jars to preserve.
