Mescluns

Mesclun is a mixture of young greens. In addition to including lettuce, it may have things like spinich along with savory chicory and sometimes edible flowers as well. Many cultures have a tradition of mesclun consumption, especially in the spring, when fresh new growth can be very refreshing after a long, dark winter. Many markets sell mesclun in their produce sections, and it is also possible to grow mesclun at home. By growing it at home, you can control exactly which plants go into the mixture, ensuring a desired flavor.

The word comes from the Provencal French mesclom, which is derived from misculare, a Latin word meaning “to mix.” As the name implies, the primary characteristic of mesclun is that it includes a diverse mixture of greens. Because the greens are young, they tend to be extremely tender and often highly flavorful.
