mixed salad greens


A mix of young salad greens, or mesclun originated in the markets of a term first used only in 1978, although the custom of farmers bringing young leaves to market is much older.

There should be at least five different kinds of greens for a proper mix: cerfeuil (chrevil), roquette, mâche, pissenlit (dandelion) and feuille de chêne (oak leaf) are among the most common ingredients.
