The tat soi and arugula are growing like gangbusters in cold frames
right now. I love arugula, but I’d never heard of tat soi until I
planted it this year. It’s in the brassica family, like broccoli, and
has fairly large, spoon shaped leaves. It’s a bit spicy, too … kind of
like broccoli sprouts. It’s a nutritional powerhouse, an full of
antioxidants. Also, all of the brassicas may prevent breast cancer by
increasing the liver’s ability to metabolize estrogen.
This is a pretty simple salad. Toss together the greens and onion, and
carrot. Whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over salad.
