Sour Salad mix: French Sorrel, Oca Leaves, & Raspberries
Sorrel and Oca are two greens that taste lemony. Enjoy with a sprinkle of early raspberries or add some stone fruit such as nectarines or peaches. For a dressing try a simple drizzle of olive oil. Or your can balance the sour tastes with a greek yogurt-raspberry vinaigrette mixture as a dressing.
Beta Greens Mix: Chard, Spinach and Beet Leaves
Sautée these greens as a side dish or add them to your morning smoothie for a burst of nutrients.
Borage greens are prickly raw but once you cook them they become smooth. The leaves can be eaten like a vegetable. Try cooking with a little butter or mixing with other cooked greens such as kale.
Borage Flowers are one of my favorite edible flowers. These beautiful blue star shaped flowers taste faintly of cucumber and make a fantastic cocktail or desert garnish. Or add them to your salads for a fun splash of color.
