Wordless Wednesday: Eating Violets
When eating violets, avoid the yellow ones, which are not edible.
The new, tender leaves of blue or white violets make a lovely salad, though. Just add olive oil, salt and pepper, lemon juice, and confectionary sugar.
This recipe was approved by a ten- and a seven-year old, who both tried to sneak more violets out of the bowl before daddy came home to get his share.
About violets... high in iron, calcium, and anti-oxidants.
