Yum! So easy. Chives being mostly unavailable here (I can sometimes find them, but it takes some work), I used 3 spring onions in their entirety - both white and green. Made for nibbles with 10 people over watching the Greece-Argentina game (we lost) in the World Cup. Every one liked these a lot. Thanks.
