DrBombay.

DrBombay, DrBombay, DrBombay.

what exactly do you propose to do with that poor, wan little chive, sitting on the chopping board, quaking at the thought of being thrown into a big pot of wanton putanesca sauce?

all the strong vegetables would laugh that feeble little pretend onion straight into a bag of potato chips. or dip. or a little hors doeuvre.

pale, demure food.

food with an accent that I just can't place.... french? dunno.... swiss?...dunno...

yellow onions, however - like Chik Fil A and cocoa krispies - will never... NEVER cast any doubt on their American authenticity.

No birth certificate problems for these guys.

but chives...?

...maybe that's a Kenyan accent I detect...

huh.

Chives and scallions are in the same family.  Anyone could've made that mistake.

Most folks call them green onions, but they're really scallions.

Scallions, FTW!!!!!

Yes, he does.  Scallions, the high end leek.  :tiphat:  White onions best used in trailer parks as an apertif mixed with malt liquor and as a compliment to Chef Boy Ardee canned ravioli.
