Assorted Lettuces With Fall Colored Flowers

Assorted Lettuces With Fall Colored Flowers
You haven't eaten lettuce until you've eaten ours. This lettuce is grown in our coveted soil in the fields. The lettuces are subject to wind and rain and temperatures high and low. Unlike hydroponic alternatives and controlled climates programmed for optimal yield, our lettuces are grown for flavor and texture. This salad isn't calling for dried cranberries or nuts though you are encouraged to explore should you choose. This recipe is about as simple as it gets and it's placed here to highlight these fantastic ingredients. 


Servings: 8- 4-oz salads
