Chives are a member of the onion family native to Asia and Europe. The long green stems are mild with a not-too-pungent flavor.
Its delicate onion flavor is a favorite garnish for baked potatoes, sprinkled on eggs, salads, dips, added to soups, and used in herb sauces. Stirred into thick yogurt, they make a great relish for grilled fish.
Chives are a nutrient-dense food. This means that they are low in calories but high in beneficial nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
