Chives have a delicate, mild onion flavor that makes them great in any soup, stew or salad! Although they bloom in May and June and are best fresh (the leaves lose their flavor when they are dried), nowadays we luck out as most markets sell them fresh, year round so we can enjoy chives anytime. And after you try this delish dish with chives you’ll be so happy to know that you can whip these up, any time of year – Say hello Skinny Chive Mashed Taters.  We love lightened-up comfort food!
