Summer at the table

During the summer months you always find colourful salads on the table in The Blue Café. As soon as the frost is out of the soil I have the salad seeds planted, and it usually doesn't take long untill the first greens are up. From then on the vegetable garden gets daily visits from me.
I use to colour my salads blue with borago flowers, but the borago is not blooming yet, so other flowers will have to do. The beautiful purple flowers of chives are often used, but tonight, making a salad for supper (our son Øystein phoned last night to let me know that he would stop on his way home from work to have supper with us) I found some wild daisies.

Green ruccola salad, mozzarella, cherry tomatos and purple flowers. I love the dance on this plate.
