We’re pretty proud of our seasonal baby lettuce mix, freshly picked on our farm. We grow all sorts of organic leaves and pick what tastes best each season to give you a balanced mix of colors, textures, and flavors: sweet, peppery, delicate, and crisp. Look out for young leaves of green romaine, oak leaf, lollo rosso, rocket, and batavia. It’s a great addition to any salad, sandwich, or smoothie!
Keep in the fridge with the leafy greens, make sure the delicate leaves don't get crushed. Eat as fresh as possible. Fresh from our farm, give the leaves a wash before using. Transfer it to an airtight container with a paper towel to absorb excess moisture.
Start by washing the leaves thoroughly and patting them dry.
Three tips for a yummy salad:
1. Balance: Balance salty cheese or olives with sweet apples, roasted peppers, or tomatoes, and combat bitter tastes with something sharp.
2. Texture: Toasted nuts, seeds, or croutons will lend a crunch. Pulses and grains such as chickpeas can make the salad more filling!
3. Flavour and Garnish: Herbs, crumbled cheese, nuts, and vibrant dressings are best added at the end as a finishing touch.
These tender greens also make a wonderful addition to sandwiches, wraps, or as a garnish for various dishes.
