More free salad!

I'm working towards a salad made wholly of leaves picked from the hedgerow. Last week I found that I had Jack-by-the-hedge (or garlic mustard) growing in the garden, and I've also seen it in many places. I added a few tasty leaves to a salad. It's not until their bruised that the leaves give off their garlic aroma.

Here are some other edible hedgerow plants that are on my list to add to my existing salad repertoire of dandelion leaves and garlic mustard!
I'll add to this list as I find more...

  1. I tried a hawthorn leaf and a young beech leaf while out on a walk at the weekend - I have to say I wasn't all that taken with them! One or two of each in a salad, but no more I think!
