Spring, probably like no other time during the year, offers wide range of greens and herbs. Many of the greens are bitter in taste. Dare to use them in your salads as they help detoxify the liver. Good mixture of cultivated baby greens, wild herbs and flowers will make any salad not only look magnificent, but also taste good. Use simple dressings to enhance the taste. Virgin olive oil with a dash of aged balsamic vinegar or lime juice with freshly grind salt and pepper would do the trick. But as with anything, feel free to experiment. And never forget to enjoy your food in good company!
