I have bought this product twice. Each time, I've used several of the fresh chives in dishes and washed, dried and frozen the rest. The frozen chives work well in any dishes except salad ones. However, they are a major 'plus' to many other dishes. It is only the texture of frozen chives that is not suitable for a salad but it is great to have fresh (albeit frozen) chives to add to pasta dishes, etc. I highly recommend this product.
