Bloomin' Herbs

At the Echo Park farmers' market this week in Los Angeles, many of the stands showcased flowering edibles that were new to me. Blooming arugula, watercress, black radish were among the standouts. Also the petals of vibrant calendula flowers can be plucked and scattered on salads. Ready for snipping into herbaceous florid salads, the delicate blooms delight the eye and palate.
