Peppery Tomato-Feta Salad

Share

Nasturtium flowers have a spicy, peppery taste and are high in vitamin C and sulfur. Dandelion flowers can be collected in summer and add a mild bitter flavor to this salad. The whole dandelion plant (including flowers) is used as a diuretic and liver stimulant in China.
