Tomato Lavender Salad

Do I even need to discuss this one? Think summer garden, quick and easy...I prefer this to using Lavender Salt because the fresh lavender is more fragrant.

ripe beefsteak tomatoes
sea salt
lavender petals

Slice the tomatoes, plate them and lightly sprinkle with a flaky kosher or sea salt (Halen Mon or Murray River would be excellent), then add a dollop of mayonnaise and sprinkle with the flower petals (not buds) of a culinary lavender (Hidcote is my favorite or any other English or Provence lavender).
