Growing a lot of onions, not salad, but different varieties of large onions.
The Polish are constantly cutting off the stalks, they regrow very quickly.
I have never bothered with them before, just waste.
They put them in salads and make a soup from them, very tasty.
They also boil them with potatoes.
I detest red beetroot, grown some golden beetroot this year, good stuff.
I have always thrown away the leaves and stalks of beetroot, the Polish make a soup with them.
You live and learn.
