The chive blossoms taste quite oniony and add a lot of taste to the dressing and are also nice added to the salad greens. Love spring with all the fresh new salad makings!!

Crisp, vibrant and springy. I also subbed a half mayo for the plain yogurt and since I like my salad dressings on the more pourable side, I thinned it with a little bit of half and half cream. Substituted red bell pepper for tomatoes (supermarket toms are horrible this time of year) and omitted the mushrooms because I much prefer them cooked. Fresh chive blossoms from the garden and I added a few of the petals to the dressing. Thanks for posting! Reviewed for Herb &Spice of the Month: Chives in the French Forum.

This review is for the dressing only. Very good. I think I'd make it with half yogurt/half mayo next time.
