Salad of the week

 All 23 varieties of greens in the variety trial are ready to eat, creating a carpet of colors and textures on the greenhouse benches.  While measuring and harvesting them I like about which would go well together in a salad.

This weeks salad mix has two brassicas that provide crunch and mild flavors and two mustards that add texture and possibly some spiciness.  Fall grown scarlet frills don't seem quite as pretty as spring grown.  Maybe I am less impressed due to all the other showy varieties growing right now.  I'm growing three kinds of pac choi, and like all of them because they are so crunchy.  Every salad needs some crunch.
