Wild Mild Minty Pansy

Pansies among many other botanicals are edible. They are beautiful and bright and add an interesting pizazz to your salad or refreshing beverage. Pansies have a very mild minty flavor. Adding chopped pansies to ice tea or lemonade would be delightful, even floating a few on top is lovely. Homegrown pansies are the best to use to assure they are pesticide free.

Pansy Strawberry Walnut Salad
3 cups your favorite salad greens
16 fresh strawberries, sliced
6 oz walnut halves
8 oz blue cheese (crumbles)
8 oz raspberry vinaigrette dressing
8 organic pansy blooms (6 chopped and 2 for on top, whole)

Toss and Serve
