|Sorry about the fuzziness, bad blogger..|
Recently I got a chance to review some salad leaves, as someone who normally buys the plain salad-in-a-bag this seemed like a decent opportunity to compare and contrast as these weren’t your usual nondescript washed rocket these were Steve’s Leaves; a UK domestically produced and freshly farmed salad (amongst other products). The bags that arrived were Fennel Tops & Sweet Leaves, the bags were brightly and clearly labelled and are described as “a totally herbaceous mix of fennel tops and some of our favourite sweet leaves, namely: baby spinach, baby green batavia and baby chard.”
The meal with which I had the salad was a pan fried steak and blue cheese, it went surprisingly well together especially with the mint honey dressing. The baby spinach, chard and green batavia had a lovely crunch and sweet taste, the fennel tops had a very slight bitter taste that was a perfect mix for the spinach and made the meal delicious. After this it does seem quite hard to go back to regular store bought salad bags now.
