Spring salad with herbs-mustard-dressing

The birds are singing and tweeting, the bees are humming and a butterfly warms its wings in the sunshine. Ms Aitch has planted the first hornet violets in the YOK-Garden and moved the oleander from the wintering ground. The currant bush and the gooseberry bush show the first tender leaves. The gardening season starts!

Ms Aitch puts the first violet flowers, the tender leaves from the dandelions and the sorrel and a little bit of the tarragon and makes a delicious spring salad with a fresh herbs-mustard-dressing. The salad is so tasty that it made the run for the green Easter menu 2015 as a starter.
