I have to admit that I haven’t done a whole lot with this week’s bag, yet. I know, I know, it’s Friday, but there you go. I have eaten one of the oranges, which was yummy, and made a salad with the mizuna. That was super tasty.
So, mizuna is an asian mustard green. As I learned from the mustard green experiment a couple weeks ago, greens in the mustard family taste like mustard. Shocking, I know. Mizuna had that same dijon flavor, but was no where near as potent as the mustard greens. It was very delicate and added a lovely bite to the green salad I made.
I dressed the salad with Joe’s (my dad) salad dressing, which is refreshing and incredibly easy to make.
Salad greens (I used sweet butter lettuce)
2 TB olive oil
2 TB lemon juice
hot sauce (to taste)
Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, and hot sauce together.
Put greens in salad bowl and top with a dash of kosher salt. Pour dressing, toss, and serve.
