Nasturtium in salad

Do you grow the pretty nasturtium flowers, in yellow, pink, white and especially in hot orange? The flowers are delicious additions to a salad.
To me the nasturtium flower tastes like a peppy yet mild radish, an ideal radish.
We are having steak on the grill tonight cooked by my dh, rustic baguette with a bit of olive bruschetta, and a favorite salad of mine. The salad has cucumbers, tomato, fresh basil from the garden and nasturtium flowers. They look pretty too!
Dressing at our house is olive oil, red wine vinegar and splashes of Trader Joe's seasoned rice vinegar.
It is so tasty and pretty to add nasturtiums to salads that I am inspired to buy a pack of seeds tomorrow, so we will soon have even more pretty flowers.
