Hidden Acre Flower Salad

Hidden Acre Flower Salad

In our walk in life, there are people that we meet that are passing strangers, others are good acquaintances, while others lead to friendships. It is when you find that connection to another human being that mirrors your soul that even from the beginning a bond of friendship is forged. That’s how I felt when I met Melissa Philips, owner of Hidden Acre Farm. She has such a lovely personality and a sexy English accent. She sells edible bouquets, edible flowers, salad mix and microgreens. 

And so I had a cool idea of making my first very own flower salad, which I named after Melissa’s farm.

 

Hidden Acre Flower Salad

3 cups of Salad Mix, chopped

a few microgreens on top or watercress

a few edible flowers

1. Arrange the salad mix on the plate. Add the microgreens or watercress.

2. Top it with edible flowers. Feast with your eyes before you eat it with your favorite dressing.

As my husband said, it’s quite weird to eat the flowers. It definitely has a mild watercress taste with a hint of mint and notes of sweetness. I sent Melissa a couple of pictures and she replied, “Wow, that looks amazing! The best I’ve ever seen them look”.  She invited me to visit her farm. Hopefully, we’ll be able to do that this week. And perhaps plan for a Farm-To-Table Dinner for limited seats only, before summer ends.

What a wonderful acquaintance from farmer’s market to farm!

Blood Purifier

 

  • 1 whole beet

  • 2 red delicious apples

  • 4-5 leaves of kale
  • 6 stalks of celery
  • 2 inch ginger (optional)

Juice the fruits and veggies in a high-powered juicer. And drink to your health!

NOTE: You can reduce the amount of beet, if you’re not used to its taste. But beets contain powerful phytonutrients and antioxidants, particularly betalains and vulgaxanthin, which support detoxification process and anti-inflammatory response. Nature has a way of telling us what it is for. Its color and taste almost resembles to that of the blood. And it is indeed good for the blood!
