Very Good! I made 1 large bunch of scallions. Cooking time is on for the white of the scallions but the greens would fall through the grill. So I suggest a grill veggie pan. I did use the scallions to make Peas and Artichokes (Greece). Thanks Sharon! Oh the vinaigrette is yummy! It does make a lot so top a salad with it!.
