Cook Time: none

Want more edible munchies from the yard and garden? Try a flower petal salad.

Many kinds of flowers can be used for a flower petal salad. Just be sure that you don't use any non-organic fertilizers or chemical weed controls before harvesting.

Some kinds of flowers that can be used in salads are:

Salmonberry flowers

Nasturtium

Violets

Lavender

Dandelion

Rose

Calendula

White Clover

Red Clover

Chive flower

Snapdragon

Daisy

Lilac

Marigold

Cornflower

Pansy

And lots more! As you can see, you can create an incredible edible flower salad just by spending a few minutes admiring the posies in your yard.

Create your salad by picking healthy, unbruised flowers. Remove the green parts from dandelions. Tear petals from larger flowers like roses. Add a bit of mesculun and a raspberry viniagrette and viola! Flower petal salad.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_edible_flowers for a more complete listing of edible flowers.
