In our CSA last week we received hyssop. I had No. Idea. what it was or what to do with it. Some quick Googling (is that how you spell it? Drop the “e” add -ing?) showed me that it was an herb with a minty taste that either works well with licorice flavor or tastes like it. Not sure.
Anyway, most of the recipes were with carrots. My favorite was this one. I didn’t have olives, but that was the only thing I didn’t have. Perfect!
I shredded up a bunch of carrots in the food processor.
The leftover pieces were perfect for a salad!
Anyway, I mixed it together with a ton of hyssop.
To season and dress it, I used balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
John couldn’t quite place the flavor of the hyssop, but he really liked it! Now I am excited to find other uses for it!
