Mâche Salad

Mache Salad

Contemporary Salad using 17th century French lettuce!

I have a culinary confusion confession to make – I thought Mâche lettuce and Matcha tea came from the same plant, and until this past weekend avoided trying the lettuce. Glad I made the jump – what a beautiful green! My mom handed me a plastic container full of Mâche from the store and asked me to come up with a salad. I photographed the results because of the vibrant colours in the final dish. The salad itself turned out pretty tasty – a mix of fresh tomatoes and red pepper, with sunflower seeds on top. I used a basic dressing (white balsamic and olive oil with a touch of grained mustard and black pepper), then added a ginger-honey compote that kicked the whole thing up a notch.
