|Exploded Malaga Radishes|
|Golden Corn Salad|
I cut a couple of heads of Golden Corn Salad that had grown from seeds that I scattered around the fava plants. These heads are nicer than the ones that I sowed in my winter salad patch. The plants aren't as crowded so they are making much nicer heads that aren't so quick to bolt. These heads are a bit too large to toss whole in a salad so cut the bases off the plants and tossed the loose leaves with some shredded Red Iceberg lettuce. The lettuce added loft to the salad which would otherwise collapse since the corn salad is so soft. The combo of the crisp lettuce and soft corn salad was better than I expected, really quite good and worth doing again!
