I had my first produce from my new garden yesterday - Raab broccoli florets and amaranth thinnings, with purchased romaine and a creamy dressing.  Yum!

My palate seems to be maturimg, and I actually LIKED the stronger flavours. I previously only liked romaineleaf lettuce,  and tomatos and cucumbers.

What do you put in and plant for your salads?

Snacked on more fresh salad greens today which had me wondering if maybe the reason I tolerate them is that I grew them.

I have grown a fewthings in the past I am not fond of usually, and enjoyed them, even if I still wont eat the store version. Something to be said for a garden...

Radicchio is my favorite, but rest of the family does not like it so much. I like rather bitter greens with fruit in the salad.
