Quick Tip! Chop your Chives

Last week, I got home from whole foods and needed to start prepping for dinner right away. First up was finely chopping some chives. The recipe called for about 1 tablespoon for garnish, but instead of chopping just what I needed, I decided to chop everything I had. This turned out to be a minor stroke of culinary brilliance. I keep all but the tablespoon I used in a small tupperware in the fridge and had chives to use all week. They went on sandwiches, they went with eggs, in salad dressing and with butter. My chopped chives added a little something extra to lots of regular old dishes all week. So easy, so tasty, so obvious (in hindsight.) So, my quick tip is: chop your chives, asap!
