Mache Corn Salad

Mache Corn Salad - Seeds & Bulbs

Mache - Corn
Big Seeded

We chose the big-seeded Mache variety because it handles spring/summer heat without getting bitter. This old garden green is great for northern or southern gardens. Use mild-flavored mache to contrast sharper greens in salads, cook it like spinach, or use it in fruit and vegetable dishes. Makes a nice salad by itself when dressed with a peanut oil based dressing or a light vinaigrette.
