This recipe should be one of your basic recipes for frequent use. Vary the ingredients according to the season, including leaves and herbs of different shapes and colours, both bitter and sweet. Croutons (such as Turkish bread croutons) can be added.
You can decorate the salad with edible flowers from the garden, such as borage flowers, nasturtium flowers, even young flowers of chives.
Note: Make sure you wash and dry the salad leaves very gently, without bruising them.
