Traveler Tuesday

You may treasure the dahlias in your garden, but have you ever had them in your salad?

If you are traveling to Portland, Oregon, you might consider a stop at The Observatory, 8115 SE Stark Street, Portland, Oregon.

The Observatory offers an Old House Dahlia Salad including shaved dahlia tubers, fennel, fresh citrus, pears, and candied almonds in a cranberry vinaigrette topped with dahlia chips.

Beautiful fall day, nice visit with family, and a perfect lunch for a gardener.

Want more information on growing dahlias? Check out the Fundamentals of Growing Dahlias from The American Dahlia Society.

  1. A new one for me! And since I’m unlikely to ever go to The Observatory, I will probably never try them in a salad.


  2. In the Netherlands during the last year of WWII it was very common to eat bulbs to fight starvation. Although, this is the first I have heard in modern times. Interesting.
