We have been eating a lot of salads lately and I found this lovely green.

I had forgotten what the farmer had called it, until today on a random read of Gastro's blog on Radical Roots CSA.

If you get a chance to try out this green, I highly recommed it. A nice spicyness like Rocket/Arugula, but not so strong on the pepper flavor.

Very pretty and lasts ages in the fridge. (well, we are at 1 week and counting... which on greens is impressive!)

  1. I've taken to buying the MASSIVE container of organic spinach at COSTCO, here in my food desert. It's $4.99, and fills the veggie bin in the fridge (70% full) and last almost 2 weeks. The bottom of the massive container does get a little gooey, but at $5, I can't argue.

    I wish I had a nice co-op farmer to buy from locally on the west side =( ...another reason to move to Eastern Phoenix, or Scottsdale... lots of farmers markets and share-farms 15 miles to the east.
