I response to a couple of E-Mails here is a herb & flowers salad requested.
TO go along with my recipe
"Elizabethan Herb and Flower Salad".
The title suggest this is an Elizabethan circa recipe.
But this style of herbal and flower salad would have been more common throught out Medival Europe.
I wasn't there...so I am only saying!.....LOL
If anyone attempts to make this beautiful salad.....
PLease send a picture. Thank you
