3 tbsp (45 mL) thinly sliced green onion
1 tbsp (15 mL) freshly grated or shredded horseradish
½ cup (125 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp (5 mL) white wine vinegar
4 large scallops, preferably Digby
Pinch salt
Microgreens, for garnish
Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Core and finely dice apple. Add to a small bowl along with green onion and horseradish. Stir in oil and vinegar.
