Capture the taste at home
Notes: Mary-Lou Evans makes this easy, homey dessert for her family, including son Bob Evans and daughter Barb Schwabe and her husband, Russ. The family runs the No. 1 Fruit Stand together.
Notes: Andrea McFadden, owner of Okanagan Lavender Herb Farm (4380 Takla Rd., Kelowna), developed this recipe with her herbes de Provence (a French dried herb blend). Over time, she says, she started adding more fresh produce, making the salad a great light lunch or dinner dish. If you cannot find herbes de Provence, substitute ½ teaspoon each dried thyme, dried rosemary, dried lavender blossoms, and dried marjoram. Use only lavender grown without pesticides.
