PANSY HERB SALAD                                                        Serves 4

With their beautiful array of colors and mild lettuce-like flavor, pansies brighten any dish. For this salad, only lemon juice is used as a dressing. The walnuts and feta add quite enough flavor.


4 cups mixed greens

1/4 cup fresh sprigs of dill

1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

4 large basil leaves, rolled up and thinly sliced crosswise

1 large lemon, halved

Pinch of salt

Fresh ground black pepper to taste

1 cup toasted walnuts

3/4 cup crumbled feta

1 cup fresh pansy flowers


Toss salad greens and herbs in a large bowl. Squeeze lemon juice (without the seeds) over the greens and season with salt and pepper. Toss again. Add walnuts and feta and toss well. Divide salad and pansies among four serving plates and serve.
