This dip goes really well with baked potatoes but is equally good for dipping crunchy vegetables.

The flower heads are spectacular and taste as good as, if not better than, the green chives.

For a really stunning presentation, serve the dip in a deseeded bell pepper that has had the top sliced off. You can also serve carrot sticks in them (see photo, right).
