I am doing a 21 day challenge and I am making a Greek yogurt and finely chopped green onion dip and I need something to subsitute green onions with. What can I use that is very similar to it?

    Why do you need to substitute the onions? Do you have an allergy or do you simply not like them? Or do you not have any? We can help you better if we know why you can't use the green onions.

Chives or scallions would substitute nicely.

Garlic, shallots for a bit more flavor.

The trinity always works good; - onion, celery and green pepper. And of course fennel for a twang.

onion celery and carrot is another classic.

asofetida maybe? for something weird.

  • Those are good choices but technically scallion is green onion

Lots of fresh or dried dill is very nice in greek yogurt.

  • Dill is fantastic in greek yogurt! :)
