  1. Insert the Griddler® Compact plates on the grill side. Preheat to High in the flat position.
  2. Put the scallions in a large bowl; toss with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, ½ teaspoon of the salt, and ¼ teaspoon of the black pepper.
  3. Once the grill has preheated, arrange half of the scallions evenly spaced on each side of the grill. Grill, turning occasionally, until soft and beginning to char, about 6 minutes for the greens and 10 minutes for the whites. Let cool completely, then coarsely chop.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the scallions with the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
