Colourful Food

What do all these ingredients make? Yes. A very pretty and colourful salad. Pansies are one of many edible flowers that can add a splash of colour to your food. Here's the recipe I found from online magazine She Knows. It looks so fresh and summery and filled with lovely colours :) It sounds quite delicious as well...

Pansy Herb Salad

Serves 4

With their beautiful array of colors and mild lettuce-like flavor, pansies brighten any dish. For this salad, only lemon juice is used as a dressing. The walnuts and feta add quite enough flavor.

4 cups mixed greens
1/4 cup fresh sprigs of dill
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
4 large basil leaves, rolled up and thinly sliced crosswise
1 large lemon, halved
Pinch of salt
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 cup toasted walnuts
3/4 cup crumbled feta
1 cup fresh pansy flowers

Toss salad greens and herbs in a large bowl. Squeeze lemon juice (without the seeds) over the greens and season with salt and pepper. Toss again. Add walnuts and feta and toss well. Divide salad and pansies among four serving plates and serve.

Maybe some lavendar lemonade to wash it down? :)
