Tomato and Courgette Salad with Lavender
For the sauce:
Serve lukewarm or cold with crusty bread.
The combination of tomatoes with aromatic lavender is a unique taste experience. If you have courgettes in your own garden you could also cook a few of the whole flowers. Lavender gives an aromatic flavour to both spicy and sweet cuisine. Pick the flower blossoms at the height of summer. Do not wash the flowers but use a soft brush to take off any insects.
