- the crisp, pale center of a raggy head of escarole
- the small, floral leaves of parsley and salad burnett
- the first firm, dark cutting of winter arugula, grown at a snail's pace in a mossy bed and no less delicious for it
- any sweet bits left in the lettuce patch
add a cucumber, grown in a greenhouse in Idaho and drug here in the bottom of a cooler, and the last bits of a jar of lemon pickled beets. oil, salt, eat.
