Don’t you just love the Spring, the expectation of Summer to come and the new growth and green of the season is such a fresh reward after a long Winter. Early Spring is about new shoots, fresh herbs and green leaves but it is the Wild Herbs that I will focus on in this collection of recipes. There are so many Wild Herbs available Alexanders, Bistort, Borage, Burdock, Chickweed, Chives, Dandelion, Fat Hen, Ground Elder, Mallow, Nettle, Sorrel and of course Wild Garlic! There are countless herbs, many that I haven’t mentioned and even more recipes but I thought I would share three ways to use this new season bounty so you can enjoy enjoy them yourselves!

Wild Herb Dressing
Take a bunch of Wild Herbs, your favourites will do! Finely chop them and add them to a clean and empty jam jar. Next add the juice of a Lemon, Salt and Pepper, a teaspoon of Dijon Mustard (or a homemade Wholegrain mustard!) and then a good glug of Rapeseed and then place the lid on the jar and shake until mixed. Perfect for salads, but also good for new season potatoes!
There are so many ways to use Wild Herbs, these days its just about finding the time to go out and find all of these dainty delicious delicacies!!
