Nira, the Japanese equivalent of Garlic Chives, can be used in as many different dishes as you could think to use the regular “garden variety” chives. (Although they are just a bit more flavorful.) Available at Nino’s are the Green, the Yellow (basically the green variety chive grown in complete shade), and the Flowering varieties. All are suitable to use in this recipe.

Added to a stir fry, their color and pungent onion and garlic taste shines through. As a garnish in soups, or a topping on starches like potato, rice or noodles, this versatile grass both complements and brightens flavors. Enjoy this dressing recipe as a marinate for vegetables or as a dressing.
