Chive Vinaigrette

So BandMan, VegKid, and our cat, God, moved into a new house recently and it's fabulous. The kitchen is to-die-for adorable and has a dishwasher! Oh how I've missed a dishwasher. Granted, hand washing dishes has become quite therapeutic for me over the past two years, but cleaning up after a dinner party (which we have a lot) can be a real bitch with out the convenience of such a wondrous machine.
- Whoa man, I got myself way off track here...back to the new house and stuff. -

Look a the picture below; do you see that blurry background? It's our new glorious back yard. Hopefully you can make out the beautiful trees, spacious yard, extra large playset for VegKid, and the garden.

Putting in the garden was one of the first things I did when we moved in. In fact, manual labor, expertise, and fertilizer were my housewarming gifts from the ever sexy, always lovely, PaleoChick (thanks again, babe). Next to that garden, I've got a huge pot with tomatoes and chives growing in it (I'm sure you can spot it).

I wasn't really sure exactly what I was planning on doing with all those chives but they sure do look pretty in the yard. And then it happened; chive vinaigrette. Hopefully y'all all know my stance on bottled salad dressing (ugh) and making a new and exciting dressing for the many salads we eat in this house can be a daunting task, but this is a wonderful flavor explosion.

If you don't like flavor explosions in your mouth, you're looking at the wrong website :)
