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?
