Sunset Magazine's Greens With Pink Grapefruit and Borage Flowers
15 mins (prep 15)
8 ingredients
4-6 servings
From our April 2011 issue of Sunset Magazine. The original recipe specified fava greens although I could not locate fava greens anywhere in town (fresh fava beans not the leaves unfortunately). In its place-fresh baby arugula from our local farmers' market . I think other greens such as watercress, mache, heirloom lettuce, baby spinach, etc would work well in this salad recipe. The flowers of lavender, rosemary, mustard, chives, etc. or other various edible herbs can be substituted for the borage flowers if the latter is not available. Simple elegance and very pretty!
