California Salad Recipe

This California Salad Recipe is made with "Spring Mix" greens, sometimes also called Mesclun Mix. This is a combination of baby lettuce leaves with the addition of endive and radicchio, plus arugula.
I have 2 different recipe variations of a California Salad for you to try.






spring mix salad, green salad recipes

The bitterness of the endive and radicchio is offset by the peppery flavour of the arugula.

This mixture of flavour, colour and texture is usually just dressed with a classic vinaigrette.

The lettuces used for this recipe mix usually are any or all of the following: romaine, oak, tango, lolla rossa, red & green leaf, mizuna, arugula, tatsoi, mache, red & green chard and spinach.
