Chives in oil enhance the flavors of both poultry and fish.
Blanch minced chives in boiling water just until bright green, 1 minute. Drain, and rinse in cold water; squeeze chives in a kitchen towel to dry. Transfer to a blender; puree with 1/4 cup oil, scrape down sides of blender, and blend until smooth. Add remaining 1/4 cup oil; blend again.
