Strawberry. Melon. Flora. The Salad.

fruit sal·ad


  1. a mixture of different types of chopped fruit served in syrup or juice.

I was so excited to attend the Farmers Market this weekend at Union Station.. and even happier to find chives. My mind instantly went toward a recipe idea that I could not wait to try.

Viola! The Strawberry Melon Flora Salad.

For this delightful blend, I used only the flower of the chive which has a spicy, earthy taste to it that is unlike the fruit in this salad, but that is what added the appeal.

I was also able to find spearmint at the farmers market, and that is one of the ingredients. A handful in the salad is perfect.

Strawberries are added to the mix, eight to be exact.

Watermelon, another refreshing ingredient, one cup will do.
