We’ve spent a lot of time on this blog giving you recipes involving our Live Butter Lettuce, perhaps to the neglect of some of our other veggies. So, lets talk Upland Cress. Did you know that our Living Upland Cress has more vitamin C than oranges, and more vitamin A than broccoli? Plus for those of you looking for a little spice, this is just the thing. (Don’t worry though, you can cook the spice out if that’s not your cup of tea.)
To show our Upland Cress a little love, we sent a package of it to Ayah over at HealthyTastyCheap.com. Healthy Tasty Cheap is a great website run by two cousins, Gillian Young and Ayah Young, who explore healthy ingredients and tasty recipes that are good for your body and for your wallet. The blog has received recognition as a FoodBuzz “Featured Publisher” and as a WellSphere “Top Heath Blogger”. We were excited to see what Ayah would come up with when we sent her the Upland Cress and she did not disappoint! Below is the delicious Beet and Upland Cress Salad that she created.
To make your own, you’ll need the following:
- 1/2 bunch Living Upland Cress
- 2 small/medium steamed beets (sliced)
- 1/8 cup dried cranberries
- 1/8 cup chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
- Balsamic vinaigrette (We hear that Newman’s Own is great tasting. Also, all their profits go to charity.)
