-- Tasty's -- the Power of Flower7 Salad

Total Time

--Tasty-- and I collaborated on this colorful spring/summer salad today! There are as many variations of the salad as there are vegetables, fruits and herbs! Use a light vinaigrette of your choice to complete the recipe. Read *Note below in the directions. --Tasty Dish-- would like to dedicate this recipe to flower7.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. *Note: see my posted photo above for a guideline on how to arrange the vegetables, fruit and herbs on the platter. Of course, how you arrange the produce and what produce you choose, is left to creative license.
  2. Place the baby spinach or mixed greens towards the bottom of a platter.
  3. Set the green onions on the platter-these are your "flower stalks".
  4. Place the slices of bell pepper in a "flower" pattern on the green onion stems.
  5. Place the strawberry slices (the "petals") between slices of bell pepper "petals". (I would have added more strawberries but I ran out.).
  6. Arrange each black olive half in the middle of the flower and garnish each olive with a chive blossom.
  7. Put the green peas on top of the spinach or mixed greens.
  8. Place mint leaves around the edges of the platter.
  9. Serve salad with the vinaigrette.
  10. 'Be like the flower, turn your face to the sun'. Kahlil Gibran.

I used mixed greens, my chives only had buds that had not blossomed, so used chives, dandelion flours(just the petals), some violet flowers, and a red wine vinaigrette. Nice salad! Thanks! Made for our lovely VIP for the Vegetarian Swap-April 2011!
