Fleurs de salade / Salad flowers

Image

Today I would like to show you how to make the cute edible flowers that you usually see in Asian restaurants. It’s easier than it looks… 

Just wash and peel your favorite crisp vegetables. Then, like sharpening a pencil, insert carrots, cucumbers, squash, zucchini or parsnips in the sharpener to create ribbons. Arrange the ribbons in a nice way. You can also add a miniature corn cob in the center to make it more realistic.

The tool I purchased on internet is: Easy Carrot Curler from Norpro, about $5.
An additional crinkle cutter blade is attached on the side to groove the vegetables.

    • It’s exactly as you would sharpen a pencil. Instead you have a carrot and a larger sharpener that you can easily find online. I found mine on amazon.
