Salmon-Stuffed Daylily Blossoms

The daylilies are blooming like mad and I got to make one of my favorite wild dishes. These blooms always provoke a lot of questions when I take them to a dinner. They're a great first introduction to wild foods.

Salmon-Stuffed Daylily Blossoms

To make these simply remove the stamens from the center of the flower and stuff any kind of tasty filling into the hollow. I usually use long pieces of wild onions or chives to simulate the stamens, but this time I've used the flowers from some Lady's Thumb for decoration.

My salmon salad recipe is basically 1 can of pink salmon drained and with the bones removed. Chop up one apple and add it to the salmon, along with a couple of dollops of mayonnaise to taste.

That's it! You'll be surprised at how good this simple recipe tastes. You really don't need anything else. Use this salmon salad to stuff into the Daylily flowers or just on a sandwich.

the day lilies have been taunting me since I noticed the first bloom, the milkweed blossoms, however are screaming at me! Oh I am getting excited for the summer! This looks good, Steph will undoubtedly try this at some point.

I just love to experiment with daylily blossoms. There was a little too much mayo in the salmon salad, but it was still great. You can't make a bad daylily dish.

I've never tried milkweed, but I'm seeing those blooms too! How do you like to prepare the blossoms?
