I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Nasturtium Vinaigrette

This vinaigrette is beautiful on a green salad, sprinkled with extra dried nasturtiums. Fresh nasturtium flowers are edible and would also be a great addition.

Here's the link to make nasturtium capers and dried nasturtium flowers

Ok, on to the dressing:

4 green onions, chopped
3/4 cup olive oil 
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp sundried tomatoes, finely chopped
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp dried nasturtium flowers, crumbled
1 tbsp nasturtium capers

Aren't these homemade nasturtium capers like wow!
Chop the white part of the onion quite finely, but the green part can be more coarsely chopped. Add everything to a jar and store in refrigerator 1 week.
Try it in this recipe, White Fish with Nasturtium Vinaigrette:
