Chive Sauce

Vividly Christmas
This chive sauce is wonderfully creamy and refreshing with a distinctive chive flavor. Thanks to the quick preparation, it is always quickly at hand and can be combined with a decidedly large number of dishes.

If you find the chive sauce with crème fraîche only too creamy, you can quickly remedy the situation. Instead of 7.05 oz (200 g) of crème fraîche, use only 3.53 oz (100 g) and add another 3.53 oz (100 g) of natural yogurt. This change makes the chive sauce a little more liquid, but also tangier in flavor. I call this the "summer version." Very trendy is this version for grilling at my family home.
