Flower salad


While shopping at Whole Foods the other night with the Mama, I found a little container of edible flowers! They were so pretty, I couldn't resist! I've always wanted to try eating flowers (more for the idea of it than anything else) but never knew which ones I could safely eat and which ones would kill me or something like that. Anyways, this packet made it pretty clear that I could eat these 'edible flowers,' so we put them in a salad with spinach, strawberries, and an orange honey dressing.


 Though they were pretty, they were certainly not flavorful. The parts of each flower that contained the organs was usually bitter, and the petals were tasteless at best. So maybe not a repeat for functionality, but still made for a great decoration!
