Summer salad

Our supper this evening included this summer salad.
Baby spinach, basil, celery leaves, mint, nasturtium flowers and leaves, oregano, pansy flowers, rocket, salad leaves, thyme, watercress . . .

. . . then I added cherry tomatoes which rather spoilt the look of it!
It tasted good,though.

  1. I have never eaten flowers in a salad, they sure are beautiful! How do they taste?

  2. That's a very pretty salad. It's worthy of being painted into a still life.

  5. How pretty, I've tried nasturtiums before, quite peppery, but didn't know you could eat pansy flowers!

  6. Pansy flowers are quite sweet, not a very strong flavour. Nasturtium leaves are peppery, the flowers slightly less so. If you're picking nasturtiums, check that there are no black fly on them - that's too much protein;-)

  8. Hey, coincidentally I'd planned to add some Nasturtium flowers to our salad tonight. And tomatoes too. Your salad looks really delicious. Funky colours ;-) I'll take some photos of our salad too (if I remember) and post them. We could have a competition for the prettiest salad. If there is no black fly on my Nasturtiums. Good tip. Being a veggie, I couldn't eat them ;-)

  11. And as there was no black fly to be seen even near the Nasturtium flowers... photos are up and I gave you a mention too. My salad was without tomatoes but with nuts. I forgot to put the tomatoes in. Tasted good though ;-)

  13. The perfect salad, it is beautiful and taste delicious. I have had pansy flowers in a salad but never nasturtium, I will have to try them (black fly optional please).

  14. It seems way too pretty to eat.
    I've never eaten pansies or nasturtiums, but I would guess that they taste sweet.
