Summer Salads

{Images 1, 2, 3, 4}

How lush do these salads look? A perfect idea for Spring or Summer. Oh that I wish we were heading there and not winter!

I remember my Granny making her salads with flowers. She loved putting pansies and nasturtium petals into them and I have to say they looked absolutely divine just like these salads above.

I would really love to make one myself but where can you buy edible flowers...?


  1. They look way too pretty to eat!! I have a book somewhere that tells you what flowers are safe to eat - I'm sure you could find a heap of info on the internet :)

  2. Grow them in your garden, in hanging plants to protect them for slugs and other crawlers. I love floral salads, so very summery, even better is to put the flowers in cakes or brew them in teas.... Adore your blog, thanks for stopping by HB.

  3. I am not too big on salads (I wish I was!), but these are completely beautiful! Flowers like these just might inspire me more to eat them.
    I have seen edible flowers in grocery stores before.

    I have another award for you (Just love your blog so much)!

  4. Oh, gorgeous! I agree, the flowers make the salads look even more lovely! Your grandmother was ahead of the curve, for sure! I have seen edible flowers in the fresh veggie department of the grocery store.
