Cucumber and borage salad

NOT JUST GARNISH!
Borage has so many traditionally used qualities and is beleived to be especially great for PMS and Menopause (especially the hot flushes).
It's a cooling herb - the leaves taste a little like cucumber while the flowers are a tiny bit honeyish.
Sprinkle the flowers over any salad and add finely sliced young leaves into your favourite cucumber salad (with proper yoghurt, salt, pepper, lemon juice and finely sliced red onion) - top with the flowers. This is my cucumber salad tonight!! And While I think the flowers look amazing as a garnish - they are so much more than that. I always 'garnish' my food with edible little power houses.
As always respect natures wisdom and only eat herbs in season! Always identify your plants. (Don't eat if you have a liver condition)
