Summer's End - Salade Mélangée


Many of the stalls outside Menton market sell home grown produce. I always buy my salad from one particular lady who sells her home-grown fruit and vegetables. Here you see her mixed salad leaves. They are always so fresh and last for several days in the refrigerator. Buying in this way, you get a wonderful mix of flavours without having to buy six different varieties of lettuce or roquette (arugula in America) and throwing half of it away.

  4. Nice looking what we call, "Salad Greens," over here. It is very good for you that you can buy from someone you trust. We never know what the salad greens we buy have had to go through to get here and some of the steps we wouldn't want to know or we wouldn't eat any salads.

  6. What a great idea. I would love to buy it fresh like that and you are right, I won't buy many different heads of lettuce because it does go bad before I can use it all.
    But we do have "salad in a bag" here and you can buy mixed greens. I do that when I want a different salad.

    Looks delicious. I can't wait to try this salad next wk when my daughter and I come to visit Menton. I bought Oragami travel plates so that we can have cheap eats like this so that we can afford to eat at fancy restaurants like Le Louis XV in Monte Carlo :)
