Summer Milkweed Blossom Salad

Susun Weed

All parts of the milkweed contain a mild poison. Just as the monarch caterpillar can eat some and survive, so can we. Just don’t overdo it, or you may experience gastrointestinal distress.

  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • 2 cups fruit of the season
  • ½ cup milkweed flowers
  • ¼ cup roasted nuts

Prepare the fruit by removing pits or seeds and cutting into bite sized pieces. Strawberries, blueberries, cherries, and peaches are in my markets when the milkweed is blooming.

Put the cottage cheese into a serving bowl. Add prepared fruit and milkweed blossoms and stir gently to mix. Sprinkle nuts on top and serve.
