A new salad treat

This year we're growing napa cabbage in the garden, and after such an early start with our warm March weather, it's already at the stage of bolting into tall flower heads.  Fortunately we had read that the flowers are edible, so we harvested a few handfuls for the salad.

The little flower heads remind me of broccoli in both taste and looks -- a little blowsier, not so firmly packed, and a bit less assertive.  If you like raw broccoli you would love these guys, and if you don't, don't worry, they're much more delicate.

And beautiful.
