It always brings me great joy when I go to the farmers market and come back with a new and beautiful find. Today I came across a beautiful flower, the Nasturtium, an edible flower.
This flower adds such great beauty to any meal. It’s full of color and adds a peppery punch that is similar to watercress. Nasturtium seeds are edible as well when they are young and green and have been likened to capers when pickled. They even offer their fare share of Vitamin C.
Today, I thought it would be a nice day to prepare a simple salad made with mixed greens, grape tomatoes, dried cranberries , a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, some grilled garlic bread and some beautiful flowers. How simple and elegant is that?
