Edible Flower Salad With Grapefruit and Watermelon Radish
Sprinkle purple pansies, snapdragon, and violets atop an edible flower salad. They taste peppery like salad greens, rather than floral in flavor. Pink grapefruit and watermelon radish offer complementary zingy-ness, not to mention bright Valentine's Day colors.
Lemon and Lavender Chicken
Roasted lemon and lavender chicken has plenty of sizzling juices that beg to be soaked up in crusty bread. The thyme and lemon balance the floral flavor and herbaceousness of the lavender.
