A site for sore tastebuds and a woeful wallet

Super Simple Summer Snack

This recipe epitomizes the phrase “Less is more”.  If you are having a party,a casual gathering, or just want a delicious snack for yourself and your family, this two ingredient recipe is a quick way to achieve it.100_8758

If you have an herb garden or happen to grow chives in your window or sun room…perhaps you have a neighbor who will share theirs or you know where they grow wild, all you need to do is cut off a dozen leaves or so, snip them into little bits and stir them into a few dollops of  sour cream (I add a dash each of salt and pepper just for fun) and let it sit in the ‘fridge until the chives impart their oniony goodness and fresh flavor into the sour cream.100_8762

Have it with crisps or a bunch of freshly chopped veggies.  You could go casual and eat out of the container, or go all diva and serve it in your best crystal dishes.  If I had fancy crystal, that’s what I’d do.  Oh well, using the flowers to further dress things up is a good distraction from the ordinary.   The fresh taste is not so ordinary.  Use more or less chives to suit your own taste.  100_8763
