The ultimate spring salad

This salad just makes me feel all warm in my bones like sun on my skin. Spring come at me. 

Spring is often an overwhelming and beautiful time all at once for us. Everything wakes up after Winter, it's cold, it's hot and sometimes Summer feels as though it's just so close that you can reach out and touch it. And then it's gone again, with another frost. 

I am just waiting, to put those tomatoes in the ground. One more week until the risk of frost passes.

But then when you make a salad like this, from all the beautiful Spring things, it reminds me to wait. To hang out here, in Spring. To keep eating everything green, for a little longer.

This salad stands alone. It's literally inspired by walking through the garden at this time of year. It's super fresh, full of herby flavours and sweetness from the young shoots, asparagus and peas. And the edible flowers are just for fun, because they are one of our favourite things about Spring - they are so abundant in Spring, as everything wakes up and then shoots to flower.
