Eating beets heals acne. It also benefits your body by providing a good source of iron. The bright pop of color in mango enhances skin health, as well as brain health.

What kinds of flowers are edible?

There are several different kinds of edible flowers, and they all have their own unique taste. For this salad, I recommend enjoying carnations (just the petals, though!). They have a sweet taste that you’ll be sure to enjoy. Calendula (marigold) petals are edible too, but these have a sharper taste that might be peppery. Dandelions have a sweet flavor if the flower is young. There’s a wide selection of flowers to choose, so have fun with this versatile ingredient option!
