greens sampler--a taste test

Two weeks ago I posted some pictures of the greens from the greens sampler.  Today I did some tasting, measured some of the biggest leaves and had a salad.  Originally twelve varieties of greens were planted.  Today's tasting and salad involved the largest of the greens.  Each of the greens is pictured on a square plate that measures eleven inches on each side.

Top Bunch Collards
Golden Frills (top) and Mizuma (bottom)
All of the lettuces were good and most of the ones with round shaped leaves kind of tasted similar, none were spicy, the Golden Frills had a cabbage like flavor with a little bite to it.

Here is a picture of the finished salad...mixed lettuces, tuna, water chestnuts and craisons topped with a little homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
