Chef Shaun Hergatt's farmers market salad

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

I met up with Chef Shaun Hergatt for a little "farmers market 101." We started at the organic carrots and then made our way over to the tiny breakfast radishes. I got the 411 on epazote, a tasty weed that's sometimes called lambs quarter.

How about a little cheese, please? Lynhaven cheese is locally sourced from Lyn's goats.

I've always wanted to put edible flowers in a dish: snow pea flowers (who knew?) and mustard flowers (so pretty).

Chef Hergatt decided we should make an elegant salad with all our fresh ingredients. Back at Juni, everything is split into two categories. For garnish we're using carrot ribbons, snow peas with flowers, mustard flowers, dill, elderflowers, fava bean blossoms and marigolds.

The base of the salad gets those adorable baby radishes, fava shoots, nasturtium leaves, purse lane, red oak lettuce, lambs quarter, and stonecrop.

Then it was time to get down to business: finally I build it on the plate. Let's not forget the pistachio dust. By the way, Chef Hergatt says you can use any nut you like.
