Tender.....just like lettuce!

By: on 21 November 2013
We have never been a big fan of mustard greens, however gave this one a go. Found it to be very soft & tender, with no 'hot' flavour like mustards usually have. We use it added to other lettuces and also on its own like bok choy. Highly recommended!
