Puree the ¼ cup Snipped Chives with the canola oil in a blender until smooth, season to taste, cover and let sit overnight. Do not place in a refrigerator.

Remove and hold warm.
Place 2 cups of the Hash around the center of a warm serving plate. Top with the cooked salmon, drizzle with ½ oz. of the vinaigrette and ½ oz. of the chive oil.
