Sweet & Spicy Greens Mix – Your Salad's New Best Friend

Our Sweet & Spicy Greens Mix began as a simple customer request: a salad with a dynamic range of flavors – a symphony of contrasting tastes and textures. We worked to fulfill a desire for more than just a "salad"; this was to be an experience.

Sweetness Meets Spice

The delicate sweetness of tender lettuce is the foundation of this blend. From there, things get exciting! Peppery arugula delivers a bold bite, while mizuna and tatsoi mustards bring a subtle spiciness and a hint of fresh wasabi. The earthy depth of kale grounds the brighter flavors, while endive and radicchio contribute smooth bitterness and nutty complexity, rounding out the flavor experience. 

How the Flavors Work Together

  • Sweet Lettuce Base: The various lettuces form a gentle foundation, providing a subtle sweetness that allows the other flavors to shine.
  • Spicy Counterpoint: Arugula leads the charge with its distinctive peppery bite, adding a refreshing zest that cuts through the sweet notes.
  • Flavor Complexity: Mizuna and tatsoi contribute a milder heat with a hint of mustardy spice, lingering on the palate and adding depth.
  • Balancing Earthiness: Kale offers an earthy, subtly sweet flavor that tempers the spiciness, creating a bridge between the sweet and bold elements of the mix.
  • Smooth Finish: Endive and radicchio bring a mellow bitterness and rich, nutty undertones. This complexity rounds out the experience, easing the spiciness and providing a satisfying finish.

Serving Suggestions

  • Flavor Showcase: Enjoy this mix as a simple salad with a light vinaigrette (balsamic or citrus-based dressings work beautifully). The diverse greens will be the stars of the show.
  • Protein Pairing: The robust flavors pair well with grilled chicken, smoked salmon, or crumbled goat cheese.
  • Warm & Savory: In a pan, lightly wilt the greens with olive oil and garlic. Top with toasted pine nuts and shaved Parmesan for a comforting side dish.
  • Crunchy & Creamy: For a luxurious contrast, add toasted nuts or seeds for crunch and creamy elements like avocado slices or dollops of goat cheese. 
  • Sweet & Tart: Complement the greens with dried cranberries, fresh berries, or thinly sliced apples or pears for a touch of sweetness
  • Citrus Twist: Elevate the flavors with preserved lemon, blood orange segments, or a squeeze of fresh grapefruit. 

Growing Tips

  • Planting: Plant from early spring through early fall in mild climates.
  • Cut-and-Come-Again: For continuous harvests of fresh, tender greens, replant every 2-3 weeks
  • Optimal Harvest: Harvest early in the day for the freshest taste and longest shelf life.

    Great tasting and easy to grow

    Posted by Anne Bonet, IL on Jul 29, 2017

    I tried this seed for the first time last summer and it worked well. There was a great variety of seed and I was able to have several plantings or great tasting greens. The seeds did well in hot and cool weather.
