Green onion vinaigrette with lemon and honey

Scorrere verso il basso

This vinaigrette with lemon, honey and the green part of spring onions (or plain onions) is incredibly easy to make and super delicious! Its flavor is a mix of sour, sweet and slightly spicy, I would say almost sparkling thanks to the fresh aftertaste of the spring onion. It is a perfect sauce for dressing mixed vegetable salads or salads with egg, potatoes or tuna. It’s a good way to use the green part of onions for an excellent no-waste recipe.
