  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • A few turns of freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 green onion ends removed (both the "hairy" end and where the green part starts to get floppy)
  • 1/2 cup neutral-flavored vegetable oil like peanut or canola check for allergies before using peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
