GOURMET SALAD


The  festival gourmet salad is a delightful mixture of ingredients, including a select mix of different shapes and colors of lettuce. Only the most tender ingredients are used, which gives this salad a soft texture that adds a healthy pop of color to any dish.

This mix has two varieties of lettuce: Oak leaf and Endive. Oak leaf lettuce is characterized by round leaves, even size, crunchy texture, mild flavor, and beautiful appearance.

This type of lettuce can have different colors, from bright green to dark red with bright green tips, or “Mondai.” Endive has compact greens with pointy leaves, even size, crisp texture, mild to medium flavor, and very pleasing appearance. This type of lettuce has a variety of colors, too, from bright green “Frilly” to bright red “Amandine.”
