Young linden leaves makes for an excellent base for a salad. Here we have mixed it with some violet and wood sorrel flowers and leaves as well as some immature elm seeds.
With some more stronger tasting herbs mixed in this salad would have been a gourmet meal. In order to boost the flavour we ate it with some hazel nuts and smoked fish. A very filling and nutritious meal!
