Q. Any chance you could share what goes in to your salad mix (for those of us who’re /way/ too far away to stand a chance of tasting it)?
A. Thanks for pointing that out Mike. The salad mix changes with the season and can vary week to week depending on what we have growing at the time or how much we pick (there’s no set proportion). Personally, I think it’s the condition of the soil that gives the the greens such an intense flavor. Of course, it being picked fresh each morning and “organic” do contribute to the incredible taste, but there’s something else that blows everyone away when they have a bite.
At any give time the salad can contain any or all of:
Lettuce – assorted varieties
Mustard – green, red, purple
Kale – green, red
Basil – sweet, purple
Arugula – assorted varieties
Spinach – assorted varieties
Orach – red
Asian Greens – assorted varieties
(This is off the top of my head, so I hope I listed all the greens!)
