A Semi-Garden Salad


Dandelion greens, italian arugula, chopped chinese leeks and johnny-jump-flowers added to a salad of grocery-purchased romaine and celery complemented an otherwise sweet pre-summer dinner.

That's what I made today. Peace.

So pretty! I've had pansies, so these probably are similar.

So pretty. What do Johnny Jump Ups actually taste like? I always get excited to have some edible flowers around MidSummer, but the only ones that have any good taste are nasturtiums, and I can't always find them. While Johnny Jump Ups are right there in my mom's yard!

Wizardess ~ Johnny Jump Ups have no distinct flavor and complement all kinds of foods. These are nice, too, because they bloom all season!

Give them a try!
