We came across this salad green at the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market
last weekend, and we'd never seen it before.It's known as Red Orach, Saltbush, or German Mountain Spinach
. It's native to Mediterranean regions and is used as a salad green, and is also eaten cooked. We haven't tried it, so we don't know how it tastes. Have you tried it? How was it?
