Lamb's Lettuce Salad with Persimmon, Macadamia and Chicken | © 2019 |

Lamb's lettuce, also known as corn salad or mâche, has a distinctive, tangy, nutty flavour and soft texture. It is delicious in salads or soups. This beautiful winter green is packed with water and beta-caroten. It is best during the months of early summer through to autumn, but will grow well into early winter. Named after its resemblance in shape and size to lamb's tongue.

SaladDijon Vinaigrette
  • 2 medium Soft boiled eggs, peeled and halved
  • 2 Ripe yet firm persimmons, peeled and sliced
  • 80 g Lamb's lettuce (you can use baby spinach or watercress)

  • 40 ml Apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 tsp Dijon mustard

  2. Peel and slice persimmons. Arrange lamb's lettuce and persimmon slices on serving plates. Top with sliced chicken, macadamia nuts, cranberries and egg halves.
  3. Place everything for the dressing in a jar and shake vigorously to emulsify the dressing. Drizzle over the salad, toss and serve immediately. | © 2019 | | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

Such a lovely salad with its combination of flavors, colors, and textures. I love recipes with persimmon. I see them in the store and am never quite sure what to do with them!

What a beautiful and delicious medley of flavors, Angie. I don't believe I've ever seen lamb's lettuce offered here but I like your suggestion of using spinach instead. After the excess of the holidays, I'm ready to dig in to some hearty salads.

Mae Travels 12/1/19 13:58

Your flavor combination sounds great -- I just noticed that a farm stand near us has mâche lettuce in winter, I think from a hoop house. It's probably finished by now as the weather is really cold.
