"This is a great side dish to meat or fish. It's very easy to make and a good way to use up all those purple flowers that chives make. Make sure when you pick them that the flowers are still young and tender."
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter; heat until melted, about 30 seconds. Add chive flowers, garlic, and salt; cook and stir until soft and tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Grind black pepper over mixture before serving.
