Mesclun, otherwise known as Spring Mix,
is a classic green salad that Kingston serves
up nationwide complementing a variety of
dressings. This leafy salad contains a mixture
of young leaves and shoots of wild cultivated
plants, including endive, dandelion, arugula,
lambs lettuce, oak leaf and others. Edible
flowers are sometimes added to the mix. Spring
Mix is a great source for vitamin A which helps
support a healthy immune system. In addition
to containing more fiber than iceberg lettuce,
Kingston spring mix offers more natural
sources of soluble and insoluble fiber.
Originating in the Provence region of France,
Spring Mix salads otherwise known as Mesclun
fall into two broad classes: mild and piquant.
The milder blends incorporate more lettuce;
mixing together several different varieties,
while the piquant class include more peppery
cresses and tangy mustard greens.
