Every time I’m at the Union Square greenmarket in New York, I find myself making a beeline towards the Windfall Farms stand as they have the most beautiful and delicious micro greens.
For this salad, I picked up some wild spinach (also called lamb’s quarters), micro purple kohlrabi, chive blossoms, and sunflower greens. If you have a garden, it’s likely that wild spinach is growing somewhere and you might not even realize it, as it’s considered to be a weed.
Wild spinach is actually one of the most nutrient dense wild greens out there! It’s high in vitamins A and C, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and riboflavin.
