How to Make Cucumber & Nasturtium Flower Salad + Video

I’m going to show you a recipe for Cucumber & Nasturtium Flower Salad

How to Make Cucumber & Nasturtium Flower Salad - cookingwithkimberly.comNow, you may be squishing your nose up, thinking to yourself, “Isn’t that a flower?

Yup, the nasturtium is a plant – all of which is edible. Be sure they are organically grown.

The leaves, the flowers, the stems, the pods, all of it. Best thing about it isn’t the obvious beauty of the flowers in your meal or on your plate, it’s the bright, peppery flavor nasturtium gives to your food.

I use nasturtium for so many different and unique things, too many to mention here, but today, this salad is a winner, and you’ll love it to be in your repertoire.

Plus, grow these organically in your garden as great ground cover, as well as being a productive plant you can use all season. Different colors of flower lend to the mystique and exotic look of dishes using them as a garnish or ingredient.
