A perennial herb planted by gardeners for its fresh citrus scent, lemon balm is known for having calming, mildly antibacterial properties. Compared with lemon essence, its fragrance is lighter, headier and more “fatty.” Honeybees love it!
Fresh Fig Arugula Salad with Blackberries, Goat cheese and Walnuts. I made this salad with arugula, because I love its peppery taste and it provides a perfect contrast to sweet fruits and berries. I also added goat cheese and walnuts, but you could easily substitute your favourite cheese and nuts.
