Crazy about salads

The salad bed is looking good at the moment. Plenty of lovely lettuces. Amish Deer Tongue, Red Oakleaf, Green Oakleaf, Lamb's Lettuce, Wild Rocket, Salad Burnet.A bed of lettuce leaves tossed with favourite dressing (lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil, salt & pepper, in my case). Various toppings, such as quartered hard-boiled egg(s), sliced avocado, chunks of cheese, etc.

What is Amish Deer Tongue? I've never heard of it!

Veggie Gnome said...

Kelly - smart! :)

Katrine, thanks! Can't wait for summer when we have tomatoes again. Yeeeeaaahhh... :)

Daharja, it's a (very nice) lettuce variety. Apparently the shape of a deer's tongue. I wouldn't know, as I have never looked a deer in the mouth. :)
