Spring Chive Goddess Dressing
Laura Cabot, Laura Cabot Catering, Waldoboro

3/4 cup full fat sour cream
3/4 cup olive oil mayo
2 large cloves, minced fresh garlic
1 cup minced fresh chives
1 teaspoon fresh tarragon leaves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 anchovy filets, white or regular
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Combine all but the chives in a blender until creamy. Transfer to a bowl. Add the chives by hand and fold in. Season to your taste, cover, and refrigerate for an hour or so before serving.

You can use this as a dip or spread. Thin with a little cream to make a stellar salad dressing. Top your salad with chive blossoms for the best effect.
