  • ¾ cup Crème Fraîche 15 % Fat
  • 1 tablespoon Mustard Tarragon, Grill, or Dijon mustard
  • Pinch Salt Or season to taste
  • ½ bunch Fresh chives


  • First, wash the chives and chop them.
  • Put the crème fraîche in a small bowl, add a tablespoon of mustard.
  • Add the chopped chives.
  • Stir the sauce and mix the ingredients until the mustard blends well with the crème fraîche and chives. Season to taste with salt.



If you find the chive sauce with crème fraîche only too creamy, you can quickly remedy the situation. Instead of 7.05 oz (200 g) of crème fraîche, use only 3.53 oz (100 g) and add another 3.53 oz (100 g) of natural yogurt. This change makes the chive sauce a little more liquid, but also tangier in flavor. I call this the "summer version." Very trendy is this version for grilling at my family home.
