Borage  [BOHR-ihj; BAHR-ihj]     Bright flowers and hairy leaves distinguish this European herb whose flavor is reminiscent of cucumber. Both the flowers and leaves are used in salads, but the leaves must be chopped finely so their hirsute texture isn't off-putting. The leaves are also used to flavor teas and vegetables.

    If you've got it, but don't know what to do with it, below are some traditional dishes that the herb complements nicely.
