Q: I tend to stick with simple lettuces in salads like green leaf and red leaf but I’m starting to get bored. What are some good leafy greens I could try to vary things up a bit?
A: Try your hand at a variety of dark greens such as kale, spinach and arugula which are packed with nutrients and add a great depth of flavor and texture. You can simply substitute your regular greens for these delicious leaves. One suggestion: to combat the sometimes chewy and slight bitterness of kale, chiffonade (stack up, roll the leaves together and chop very finely) the kale for a fine texture.
