Ok this picture doesn’t show off the dressing really well, but it DOES show off the gorgeous salad that I had! Fresh strawberry slices, blueberry farmer’s market cheese, and pepper crusted bacon on a bed of spring greens, with seriously the most awesome vinaigrette dressing I have ever tasted.
So believe it or not, chives are an herb that have these poofy purple flowers, that are gorgeous, and you’ve probably seen them in a few of my more recent posts. However, I didn’t really know what to do with them, and it’s just not me to throw usable food away. I came across this post, however, by Cook Like Your Grandmother about using them to create a flavored vinegar. So I took all of my blossoms, put them in a glass jar…
And now for an awesome salad dressing!
Chive Blossom Vinaigrette
4 tbs. EVOO
2 tbs. chive blossom vinegar
2 tbs. lemon juice
salt & pepper
1. Mix together and use as salad dressing, simple as that! Just for the record, strawberries, cheese and bacon make for an awesome salad!
