Dig That "Salad Jazz"! and Dress It Up...
Jazz up your salad greens with a wonderful mix of delicate lime basil, crispy Okinawa Spinach, moist Red Malabar Spinach, crunchy Egyptian Spinach, and purple sweet potato leaves. And here is THE PERFECT DRESSING to make these new greens "pop": All measurements are approximate. In a blender, whip up a dressing of organic extra virgin olive oil (1 cup), apple cider vinegar (max 1 - 2 tsp: "less is better"), red balsalmic vinegar (2 TB), fresh squeezed lemon juice (2 - 3 TB), grey sea salt (1 tsp), fresh ground pepper (1/4 tsp), and a clove (or two) of garlic. This dressing will keep well when refrigerated for 2 - 3 weeks. It ROCKS!
BTW, If you are buying store bought lettuce, the greens above a perfect combo you can mix 50-50 with store bought lettuce UNTIL, of course, the season changes and we start selling the freshest and the most beautiful lettuce grown right here in St. Petersburg. Here is just a sample of what's coming!
