Mâche Salad with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Walnuts

Mâche, also known as lamb's lettuce, is a tender green with nutty taste that we've been going crazy for on the farm! 

The best part? This green is a POWER HOUSE of nutrition. A 4 oz. serving can provide over 100% of your daily recommended intake for Vitamin A, and more than 50% of your recommended intake for Vitamin C.  Not to mention, it's a good source of Vitamin B-6, which helps with functions, such as hemoglobin synthesis (the protein in red blood cells that helps transports oxygen through your body). 

I've been putting this green in every dish this past week, but I love it the most as a salad. See below for a simple salad I whipped up to go with dinner last night.

 Salad Tip: Don't skimp on fats like avocado or olive oil in your salads! They help absorb fat soluble vitamins (Vitamin A,D, E, and K) a lot better which will get you the most nutrition from your meal.
