Nasturtium, Berries, and Spicy Arugula Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

The BF and I love going to Detroit Eastern Market. What we love most is the plants and the food! And depending on our mood, some days are plant splurges (where we become plant hoarders) and some days are food splurges (where we buy enough food so we can go home and stuff our faces...). 

Last time we visited Detroit Eastern Market, we were happy to find a build your own salad booth with a bucket of nasturtiums. Nasturtiums happen to be a big favorite of the BF's -- because you can quite literally eat the entire flower -- and we decided to pick up a bag! Along with a few ears of fresh corn and strawberries (all fresh from the market). The only things not immediately fresh were the blackberries!
You Will Need:
Large few handfuls of spicy lettuce, arugular and salad
1 ear of corn
1 handful of strawberries
1 handfull of blueberries 
Small to medium cut of feta cheese.
Handful of  crushed walnuts

Basically, throw everything in a big fruity ball. 

We used this brand of Brianna's Home Style Rich Poppy Seed Dressing --wich was delicious! 
Then either toss your salad, or served on a plate for people to pour their own dressing. Yum!
We served it up with some zucchini bead, also from Detroit Eastern Market, and smoked salmon.
