Petunia gave me a tarragon plant last Friday.. It was flowering so beautifully I almost couldn't bring myself to eat them.
But I was curious about the taste of the tarragon flowers. So I snipped off some flowers and added them to my salad.
I must say - they taste really good.. very similar to the leaves but a teeny bit more floral! For this salad, I added a mixture of salad leaves, malabar spinach, cherry tomatoes and some sunflower seeds. The dressing is simple - some greek olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt and freshly grounded black pepper. The tarragon flowers added a real zest to the salad.
Thank you, Petunia for the plant. Hopefully, I can keep it growing well to produce a lot more flowers for my salads. There is this recipe for tarragon bread I've been curious about. I think I'd try making it with a mixture of the leaves and flowers.
