Wherever you find it collect its shoots and flowers. They have an incredible praline flavor! Raw in salads with a vegetable like french salad with its mild and buttery flavor or Chinese cabbage. Try some hazelnuts too. They are excellent.
I give you a recipe for a salad sauce with chocolate for your salad with cynoglossum columnae.
1/4 tea cup olive oil
2/3 tea cup balsamic vinegar
5 tablespoons cocoa powder dissolved in 2/3 tea cup hot boiling water and boiled until it rises for 2-3 times.
If you want to add a little more vinegar use apple cider vinegar Beat all the ingredients in a blender.
The next day it tastes much better.
