There s an old half whiskey barrel on the cottage deck that grows pansies and a few of the pansy blossoms sometimes find their way into a salad (they are edible as are violet blossoms if you don t mind picking them out of your lawn). Lemon balm is another interesting perennial with a citrus flavor that makes it easy to identify when playing the salad guessing game. Tarragon is another anise-flavored herb but I m not a big fan - for some reason I find tarragon numbs my mouth. But I ve been overruled on that account and there s always a little tarragon in our cottage salads. Kale grows well in northern gardens and we sometimes harvest mature kale in the dead of winter. When the plants are young in August and September the smaller leaves go well in a salad but because they are rough they do need to be torn into small pieces.
Don t use all of these flavors at once but by combining a few of them with your potatoes you will create an extremely delicious salad. 2. Fry The Onions For Your Salad Dressing Instead Of Using Raw Onions. One of the ingredients that seem to always be present in a salad with mayonnaise are usually raw onions chopped or grated or sliced. When you are not using mayonnaise in the salad dressing you will want to fry the onions. The reason for frying the onions is that they add even more flavor to your salad. When you fry onion you make the onions much more flavorful and much less spicy. And fried onions are great for salads! Plus when you fry onions for your dressing it makes the salad dressing that much more delicious. 3. Use Fresh Herbs Such As Parsley Cilantro Dill And More For The Salad. Another great way to make your salad very delicious is by using tasty fresh herbs in it. Fresh herbs such as parsley cilantro dill and lots others add great herb flavor. Another reason to use fresh herbs in the salad is to make it look great - herbs add a great green color to it. So don t forget the herbs when you are making a tasty salad - they will make it very delicious even without mayonnaise.
Of course any lettuce plant will reach a point where its leaves taste very bitter and by mid August much of the lettuce for his salads comes from the local supermarket - but he still gets dozens of other ingredients from the garden. Here are some of those other greens in Grandpa Green s garden that find their way into his delicious salads. Radicchio provides a nice burgundy red color. Be careful to use sparingly in a salad as radicchio is naturally bitter and remove the thick white stem part of each leaf. Arugula is very easy to grow from seed and you can start by harvesting the extra seedlings for salad while thinning out the seedlings. Pick individual leaves as the plants grow and you can get two or three months worth of arugula flavor from each plant. I find arugula one of the most interesting flavors in a salad.
