A bit out of the ordinary - this salad uses lavender and garden chives and is garnished with edible flowers (or for the less advenuresome use colorful herb blossoms). Recipe source: Lavender

Delicious! The sweet fragrance of the lavender and the restrained bite of the chives were a surprisingly pleasant combination. The tang of the yogurt was very nice as well but I found the salad lacked the creaminess I like in potato salad so I added some mayonnaise to improve the texture. Another time I think sour cream or a mix of sour cream and lemon juice might be the best option. I had daylily flowers and basil flowers for my edible flowers. And I cut back on the mustard until it was barely detectable because my DH dislikes mustard and won't eat anything if he is sure its in there.
