Do you ever get a silly and not quite original version of a song, playing in your head?
Looking at this photo I took recently made me start humming the 70's tune Jive Talkin' by the Bee Gees, except my version was: "Chive Talkin...' !!!
Speaking of chives, don't you just love them?
Not only do they add such wonderful flavour to many recipes, they are so pretty in the garden when they first appear as flowers.
And best of all, they make an appearance every year. I'm a big perennial fan!
Here's a recipe from my cookbook that you might enjoy. A gorgeous, vibrant green dressing. Wonderful to make when garden parsley and chives are plentiful. Great for summer salads and dipping too!
Green Goddess Dressing
1 C. fresh parsley
1-2 T. chopped fresh chives (to taste)
1 T. each, dehydrated chopped onion and garlic (adds an intense flavour)
1/4 C. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 C. light mayonnaise
3 T. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. sea salt
Chop parsley, chives, dried onion and garlic in a food processor. Add remaining ingredients and process just until smooth. Chill at least 1 hour to thoroughly blend flavours. Yields: 1 cup.
After you are done in the kitchen, you might want to get on your boogie shoes and go... chive talkin.....LOL :<)
