This share is full of greens. It’s fitting for spring time, so take advantage of all kinds of salads as well as greens cooked with eggs, pasta, added to soup, or sauteed with onion or garlic.
Mizuna is an Asian green that has a nice kick and crunchy texture with a lot less peppery spicy than arugula. It can be used either raw in salads or cooked slightly. It is fabulous lightly dressed with lemon, olive oil, salt, and pepper and then served under a piece of fish, steak, or poached egg. Also think about adding thinly sliced radishes and spring onions, homemade croutons, feta or a fresh goat cheese. Here is a good article about the Asian green.
