Have you used edible flowers to dress up a salad? It is really easy and fun. Add them whole or sprinkle petals on top of a salad. Spring violets add pizzazz to this delicious gluten-free and vegan beet and cabbage slaw. As the seasons progress, you can change the edible flowers: red bee balm and yellow calendula petals are tasty summer treats.Whole lilies looks great on summer salads, too. Borage, marigold and anise hyssop are great choices in the fall.
If you do not have your own garden, you can buy edible flowers at Farmers Markets and natural foods’s stores, too.
