My Salad Days
Super fresh salad greens are a relatively new discovery for me. If you have never had fresh lettuce, or any other fresh salad greens then you really need to get on this flavor train. When I say fresh I mean somebody JUST picked them, not something claiming to be fresh at the grocery store.
The difference is crazy. Tender, crisp, sweet, buttery and about 10 times more flavor. I have always liked salad but it was never one of those things that I would be like “DUDE YOU GOT TO TRY THIS SALAD”. But one day at the farmers market I got a fresh mixed salad green bag from the cool farmer dudes over at Comeback Creek, I took it home paired it with some fresh Texas tomatoes, cucumber, some green onions, avocado, pecans, and some ranch. And hold on to your hat it was a taste revolution. Ever since, I have purchased some fresh salad greens down at the farmers market if I can get to them before they sell out. So, DUDE YOU GOT TO TRY THIS SALAD.
