Spring Onion Chive Soup

March 25, 2013

We started our very special St. Partrick’s Day dinner with this lovely soup which is light, bright and a refreshing way to begin a beautiful meal.  This is a favorite especially when you have many courses to follow and on this holiday sometimes we have two or three selections for each course.  But don’t wait for a special occasion.
