Cress ( Greek - Lepidium sativum )
A versatile salad item with a nice peppery flavour.
- Kale ( Red Russian - Brassica oleracea)
Kale is also one of the most nutritious leafy vegetables you can find. Packed full of vitamins, antioxidants and iron! It can be eaten raw (best when leaves are young or steamed) or added to stir fry recipes.
- Mustard ( Green frills- Brassica juncea)
Spice up your salads and sandwiches with these bright green shoots which become serrated as they grow.
- Salad rocket ( Dentellata -Eruca vesicaria ssp.sativa)
A lovely peppery flavour to salad, the younger leaves are milder, more tender and palatable. Leaves can also be lightly cooked as a delicious spinach substitute, added to sauces, stir fried or sautéed.
