This salad dressing is a nice tart complement to any basic mixed greens salad and a great use of extra chives (which if you buy chives, you probably have extra). I used it with mixed greens from the farmers market along with some cherry tomatoes and fresh cucumber. Very simple, but a great side salad for any summer main course.
You can achieve similar success using other herbs like basil or thyme with the lemon combination. As I’ve said before, I highly recommend using an immersion blender for making dressings and sauces. It’s so fast, easy and tastes way better than when you buy dressing in a store.
