Spring Onion & tomato salad
A simple Indian style spring onion and tomato salad can be served as a side dish with home cooked food

Scallion, green onions, salad onions or spring onions people know them with different names.  

Spring onions are very rich in vitamins and protective against many cancers. Spring onions helps destroy worms from stomach.

These onions are very popular in every region of the world. Spring onions are used for various dishes like salads, garnishing, soups, stir fry etc. I generally prefer using combination of whites and greens both for my dishes. I like to include spring onions in chinese noodles, baingan bharta, lemon coriander soup, fried rice etc. Sometimes I also like eating them straight with little salt but that is not for the fainthearted.

Today Ii am making a simple yet tasty Indian style salad with spring onions. In this salad too I have included the whites and greens of onions which combined with the red tomatoes make the salad very colorful. The raw onions give a nice crunchy feel to the salad.

I always prefer making this salad for dinner as the onions tend to leave a bad smell in mouth. Serve this as side dish with a Kathiyawadi meal like Bhakhri, veggies, vaghareli khichdi, jaggery and pickle. Wow mouth-watering :) 

So lets proceed step by step for making spring onion and tomato salad
