Violet Salad 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.
