Summer Salad with Goat Cheese & Lavender


Lavender pairs well with a lot of other foods that you might be more familiar with such as pork, lamb, lemon, olives, vanilla, honey, pistachio, pears, ginger and rosemary.
If you are experimenting with it for the first time, try using the leaves and buds sparingly since it can be an overpowering strong herb. Start with 1/2 teaspoon and taste as you go.
Lavender is also refreshing in mixed drinks and cocktails. Try placing a few sprigs of lavender into a bottle of gin or vodka and store in the freezer until you’re ready to make your own or drink it neat, on the rocks.
Simple ingredients full of flavor is what this salad has to offer! The rich goat cheese calms the flavors of basil and onion, while the baby greens and nectarine offer a bright refreshed flavor. Try it for your own lunch on a sunny spring afternoon, or multiply the recipe to serve the whole family at dinner.
