1/4 cup Extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup minced Chives
1/4 cup finely chopped Parsley
2 Tablespoons finely chopped Mint
1 teaspoon finely grated Lemon zest
2 Tablespoons fresh Lemon juice

6. Return the beans to the pot and stir in the remaining 1 Tablespoon of butter. Season with salt.
7. Add half of the salsa verde to the potatoes and half to the beans, stirring to coat.
8. Transfer the beans to a serving bowl. Top with the potatoes, garnish with the chive blossoms and serve right away.
