Iceberg lettuce? Romaine? Dullsville. Bags of designer lettuce? Expensive. Short-lived. I was watching Jamie at Home today, and he inspired me with some sage advice about salads.
Basically, save all those boring varieties for the rabbits, or skeet-shooting if you are Jamie Oliver, and get yourself five or six interesting salad greens, such as:
- arugula (rocket)
- red-leaf lettuce
- green-leaf lettuce
- baby spinach
- radicchio (Italian chicory)
- tarragon (goes well with arugula)
Stay tuned for some nice salad and dressing ideas using these ingredients, coming soon!
