Salads have come a long way. In the past, they were merely appetizers but today, salads are much more colorful, tasty, and substantial, and often served as entrées unto themselves. With different salad greens such as mâche, mizuna, and escarole gaining mainstream acceptance, salads now show great diversity. Liven up the flavor by adding fruits, nuts, and edible flowers as well as popular staples such as potato, tuna, and chicken.
