This smoky sauce is wonderful atop grilled bratwurst, or slathered on grilled bread.
1 bunch purple scallions
3 small lemons
2 garlic cloves, skins on
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1. Cut off the roots of the scallions, and trim about an inch off their greens. Cut the lemons into thin slices, reserving the ends for another use. Toss the scallions, lemon slices, and garlic with the oil, salt and pepper.
2. Grill until charred on all sides, being careful not to burn the garlic. Let cool in a bowl.
3. Peel the garlic and mince. Finely chop the lemons and slice the green onions. Mix everything together with the parsley. Add salt if desired.
