Summer Salads on the Way

April 25, 2009

We have enjoyed salads from the garden twice now this Spring. The harvest has been from heirloom salad mix and savoy spinach that I planted last fall. I found myself wishing for a little melted fatback or hot bacon grease with which to wilt the salad like my Mom used to do. She would serve the salad with hot cornbread. It was quite tasty.

I am looking forward to the next harvests of salad greens from two new plantings of salad greens. One is the same heirloom salad mix, the other a mesclun mix that is very pretty with a good mix of rich color. I wish my tomatoes were far enough along to cut one up in the salad!

    Looks good! My lettuces in the window boxes need to be trimmed / thinned and eaten!!
    (BTW- I had in my mind you lived in Greenville…wonder why? Sorry for the mix up)

      Hey, not a problem. Still close by, just in a different direction.

    The term salad when used alone applies to green leaves or stalks that are eaten uncooked. An extension of the term salad, as now more generally used throughout the world, applies to a salad plant, with or without other foods, and a dressing.
