Mesclun Mix? What's that?
Mesclun is a mix of salad greens available from the wild or the garden and different kinds of leaf and loose-headed lettuce. Originating in Provencal France, the traditional recipe calls for chervil, arugula, lettuce and endive in precise proportions, but nowadays Mesclun mixes include greens such as mustards, cresses and parsley as well as wild greens and all kinds of lettuce.

The original idea was to make a salad that touches upon every taste and texture sensation: bitter, sweet, tangy, crunchy and silky. Mesclun is a treat for the eye as well as the tongue, with its colorful mix of textures.

Lastly, a Mesclun-based spring salad is just plain fun. There are very few salads that can so fully exercise the taste buds and provide the eye with such a visual feast, and few dishes that give gourmands such opportunity to play with different flavors and textures. Blend your salad in the kitchen or at the table and savor the true meaning of "fresh greens". Top the salad with a zesty vinaigrette dressing.

TIP: Add pieces of Romaine lettuce for some extra crunch!
