Gardening Season - Part III - Fresh Salad

Salad Greens

The salad mixes in the grocery may look appealing, but even the organic bulk produce lacks flavor and substance.

When you control what your produce is grown in the nutritional value increase along with flavor.

Once picked, soak them in several changes of water, dry in salad spinner, pack loosely in large ziplocs with several layers of paper toweling. Fresh Salad Greens should last a week or more.

Dress them very lightly in a light vinaigrette for they are so succulent you want the flavor of the greens to shine.
