Edible spring blossoms continue to adorn the stands at the Hollywood farmers' market. We found a new one this weekend; do you know what it is? Hint: this delicate white flower sprouts from a controversial, love-it-or-hate-it herb… It's cilantro! The blossoms have a fragrant, peppery flavor that you'll love if you're a fan of the leaves. We think they would be great in salads or as a lovely, flavorful garnish anywhere you'd use cilantro – perhaps over tortilla soup, sliced avocado, or spring fava beans. Here are a couple of recipes we found that use the flowers: • Cilantro Spring Soup, from Edible Austin • Cilantro Salsa Verde, from Kitchen Gardener Magazine Have you discovered anything unusual or new to you at your farmers' market this spring? • For more information on the Hollywood farmers' market and other Los Angeles area markets, visit Farmernet.com Related: Farmers' Market Report: Edible Spring Blossoms (Images: Emily Ho)
