Shrimp and avocado salad with borage blossoms

Shrimp and avocado on a bed of butter lettuce, with a tangerine dressing (no oil, no need), borage blossoms, and just-picked cucumber from Pam’s garden. Borage has a light cucumber flavor.

Fabulous for a fancy baby shower or bridal shower; I would even serve this at a fancy wedding with no hesitation. Though borage flowers don’t keep all that well; you can hold them for a little while in a fridge between layers of damp paper towels, but you still pretty much have to pick them that morning.

Probably best just to go out to the garden, pick some borage from the vegetable patch (remembering to remove the green fuzzy stem bit), and enjoy this for your summer dinner.

No need to share with anyone. 🙂
