One of my favorite salad: the delicate, yet nutty flavored, crunchy mache salad. Just lovely taste and texture. It is a common green salad in Europe (as "Feldsalat" or "Nuessli Salat" in the German speaking countries), but not so common in the US (yet). But now, it is available at WholeFoods from Epic Roots.
It works well on its one with a slightly sweet vinaigrette, with almonds, goat cheese or cooked beets. Or just as the green lettuce in a mixed salad, with tomatoes, string beans, cannellini beans and hard boiled eggs.
