Fresh or dried, how yummy are these beautiful little blossoms?!

arugula, radish and alfalfa sprouts, pumpkin seeds, honey chevre, strawberries, fresh figs, and balsamic vinaigrette
 *Although considered a fruit, the fig is actually a flower that is inverted into itself* 
 Fig trees have no blossoms on their branches. The blossom is inside of the fruit! Many tiny flowers produce the crunchy little edible seeds that give figs their unique texture. Eat them because they're tasty and beautiful, but also because they're packed with fiber.
