Our salad mix is a blend of red and green butter, oakleaf, incised, and sweet crisp lettuces grown as baby heads then cut while still small and tender. It is especially abundant during more mild weather before the heat of summer sets in. Enjoy it fresh tossed with your favorite dressing and top it with sliced cherry tomatoes, sweet cucumbers, spicy radishes, or whatever is in season!
STORAGE: For optimum storage life, do not wash the salad mix until just before you are ready to use it. Line a clean plastic container with a paper towel. Remove salad mix from the bag you receive it in and layer it gently in the container. Be sure to use a container that is large enough so that the leaves are not jam-packed. Place another paper towel on top and close the container. Store the salad mix in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator for up to 10 days. This method of storage also works well for spinach, arugula, and other tender greens.
RECIPE: Miso Dressing from Food52 (makes enough for one big salad)
