>Can anyone tell me some new ideas cooking with salad burnet? I do use it for vinegars and in green salads and to feed my pet rabbit who adores it <g> but I am looking for some other ideas. Thanks!
This isn't exactly cooking, but I think you might like it. It's a spread for crackers. Mix dried onion flakes and chopped salad burnet with creme cheese. It's something I look forward to every spring. I'd be interested in some recipes myself.This is my only one for salad burnet.

Another herb cheese spread I've enjoyed with Salad Burnet is:
8 ounces cream cheese
2 green onions or 1 small shallot, minced
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh sald burnet
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill
1-2 Tbsp. mayonnaise or sour cream
½ tsp. dried mustard
1 ½ tsp. curry powder
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives
Blend cream cheese with onions, herbs, and mayo or sour cream. Add the mustard and curry, blend in the chives. Flavors increase as it sits. Keeps several days in the refrigerator, or I like to form into log roll and freeze. Then cut off amount I want for individual servings. I do this with a lot of herb cheese and butter recipes.
Also salad burnet is great in gin and tonic. Put in ice cube trays and freeze. Put a few cubes in glass and 1 or 2 sprigs of salad burnet in each glas with your favorite gin and tonic recipe. Makes a nice change from traditional Mint Julep Y'all.
A nice sauce for grilled or poached fish is:
1 cup creme fraiche
2 Tbsp. salad burnett vinegar
1 ½ to 2 Tbsp. minced shallots
1 tsp. dried mustard
¼ tsp freshly ground white pepper
3 Tbsp. chopped salad burnet leaves
2 tsps. chopped chives
salt to taste
Mix all ingredients. Let set for several hours before using. Put small amount on each portion of fish. Use in other dishes in place of mayonnaise.
