In my front yard, well it’s in the front but really off to the side, there’s a huge tree. Underneath that tree that are tons of wild chive plants growing. I noticed them last summer and used some then. They actually look terrible when you drive by, they look like big tufts of grass growing sporadically in the yard.
So right after Easter, to use up by leftover Easter eggs, I made some egg salad and added some chives. Very tasty!
Yesterday, I went outside and trimmed a bunch of them down and snipped, cleaned and stored some for later use. I think that’s some pretty thrifty herbs :)
Egg Salad with Chives
6 boiled egg, chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise (or to taste)
2 tbsp dijon mustard
salt & pepper to taste
1 small dill pickle, chopped
1 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
Combine all ingredients and keep refrigerated in a tightly covered container.
