A simple and elegant dressing that we used on our salad when we had friends for dinner I didn't have "fresh" lavender to garnish with, but did have lavender dried buds and added that to the dressing and then left it to marinate for about 2 hours prior to pouring over the salad. Lovely! Just a hint of the lavender in the background with the tart of the vinegar - really complemented each other. Will be using this often. Made for Best of 2012 Game

Using lavender from our garden I whipped this together quickly today and made a marinade for skinless & boneless chicken thighs. The chicken marinated a solid six hours and I pan grilled the pieces five minutes each side. Easy! Served with 'Colorado Rose' mashed potatoes, a medley of steamed vegetables from our CSA box including carrots, broccoli, green beans, cauliflower and zucchini and sliced heirloom tomatoes. Yum!
