Cut off roots and discard. Rinse with cool water and pat dry with paper towels. Finely chop the scallions.
Over medium heat, add scallions, oil, and salt to a saucepan. Stirring occasionally, cook for 3-4 minutes or until onions are wilted. Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool slightly before serving.
