Here’s one way to use the first herb to appear in my garden after the snow melts! What a delight to pick this aromatic herb and incorporate it into a meal.


  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon local honey (Or substitue a drop of stevia)
  • salt and ground pepper (to your taste)
  • 4 tablespoons fresh chives (finely chopped)
  • 4 tablespoons fresh chives


  • Step 1
  • Fresh picked from the garden and finely chopped

    Wash and then chop the chives.
  • Step 2
  • Wisking olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice for a dressing.

    Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, and honey. Whisk until an emulsion is achieved. Stir a pinch or two of salt and ground pepper.
