Corn Salad/Lamb's Lettuce/Mache
A small plant with a rosette of rounded leaves with a unique, nutty, delicate, buttery flavor. Quick growing, sow in early spring or late fall. It grows like spinach for early-season gourmet greens. Harvest any time, even after plants go to seed. Never bitter.
Indigenous to Europe and the Mediterranean region. The plant is a traditional winter salad in France, Italy and Germany. Grown as a salad green in America since the 1700’s.
