Cutting spring onions 3/4 through and then placing them in iced water will open them up and they resemble flowers. The water can also be tinted with food colours so that the onions absorb the colour. These flowers can be used as a garnish with Asian dishes or for buffets. A typical dish would be teriyaki chicken pieces.
