Well, here’s a leaf you probably all know – the lovely lollo rosso. It’s such a popular leaf, I’m sure you’ve seen it in a salad bag somewhere along the line.
However, I think it gets more points for its decorative value than it does on the nutrition front. In all my research, I can’t find anything that speaks to its nutritional significance in your diet. But we’re not only after nutrition in a salad, are we? And as this leaf certainly does its job to make your food look attractive, we’ll keep on growing it. Plus, if you add it to the golden purslane (as well as all our other leaves!), you’ve got a perfect union in your salad bowl.
