Summer is in full force and so are the Farmer’s markets!  I couldn’t help but load up on these beautiful edible flowers.  Everything tastes fresher and more flavorful when in season. I grabbed handfuls of these colorful Nasturtiums, which are a bit spicy and peppery. They pair well with the bell peppers, radishes, and the spicy greens mix I used here. The fresh burrata cheese is a creamy finish with the citrus dressing. This is a salad dressing that is good for you, so don’t skimp!

This recipe makes 2 personal salads.
