Learn about this Violet Salad Recipe and how you can use this free wild food in a nutritious, delicious recipe.
Violets can be used in salads. Cut up leaves — blossoms and all — and mix them into any salad. Or chop leaves and stems only and wilt them in bacon grease over a low fire . . . or just go out in the violet patch and sit down and eat the blooms. Anyway you do it, you'll be getting a prodigious dose of ascorbic acid and vitamin A.
