Sure you might think a tossed salad is "salad" with tomato wedges cucumber rounds lettuce and maybe a few croutons but then if that s considered salad the how do we call potato salad a salad if most of us don t even put any of those aforementioned ingredients in our potato salad?

Lemon balm is another interesting perennial with a citrus flavor that makes it easy to identify when playing the salad guessing game. Tarragon is another anise-flavored herb but I m not a big fan - for some reason I find tarragon numbs my mouth. But I ve been overruled on that account and there s always a little tarragon in our cottage salads. Kale grows well in northern gardens and we sometimes harvest mature kale in the dead of winter. When the plants are young in August and September the smaller leaves go well in a salad but because they are rough they do need to be torn into small pieces.
