    Herb blossoms are ideal for salads, e.g. chive blossoms, basil flowers, rosemary blossoms and oregano blooms. Take these flowers, and pull them gently apart into smaller pieces before adding them into the measuring cup. Try to vary the size of the flowers, as it will eventually enhance the look of the salad.
