Blossoming Salad and Prayers on 911

The three little boys and I went to our local market while the older two were bowling the other day. This market specializes in organics and we were so thrilled when we found a package of edible flowers. The boys were so shocked to hear that they could eat flowers on their salad. It was very cute to watch their reactions when I told them this.
Each flower has its own unique flavor and we had a great time taste testing each one. I kept the salad simple so the flowers could shine through. You can't get any easier than dressing it with a salad dressing made from just one ingredient!

Blossoming Salad

by Elizabeth @ rawlivingandlearning.blogspot.com

2 C organic green leaf lettuce
2 C organic romaine lettuce
Handful of organic grape tomatoes
1/2 C broccoli sprouts
1/2 C sunflower greens
Handful of edible flowers

The juice of 1 Florida Honeybell Tangelo (any orange will do)

+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for the simple pleasure of tasting flowers. I also pray for the souls lost in the 911 attack and the family and friends who still mourn. For the lives lost I pray, Eternal rest grant to them O Lord and may perpetual light shine upon them and may they rest in peace.
