This salad has a nice balance of flavor — from the peppery punch of arugula and radishes to the mild fresh flavors of the greens and the sweet citrus flavor of the marmalade.
If spring has a flavor, it would be that of tender, young spinach leaves…so fresh and “green” and willing to share the spot-light with sweet, local strawberries.
Not all greens have to go into salads. Chard is a versatile spring green with leaves that have a spinach-like flavor. Sliced thin, they can be added to salad mixes or used in this delicious soup to take the chill out of a cold spring day.
Why toss in anything that will get in the way of the genuine flavor of truly fresh salad greens? This salad is called “Simple” for some obvious reasons — it’s simple to make and simply delicious.
