With fetching leaves and nuanced flavour, purple mizuna is the remedy to any side salad that ever made you go meh. This super green is native to Japan and has tender, purple-tinged leaves with a slightly bitter, almost peppery taste similar to arugula or mustard seeds.
The bitter flavours work wonderfully with sweet concord grapes. But what really balances the dish is our creamy Garlic Aioli Salad Dressing. It’s made from Almo Crème rather than emulsified eggs, making it entirely vegan friendly.
You’ll love this delicious duo not only because it’s pleasant on the taste buds—but also because it’s an antioxidant powerhouse! The deep purple skins of concord grapes are rich in anti-inflammatory plant pigments, called anthocyanins, and the mizuna lettuce is loaded with Kaempferol, a natural flavonoid shown to reduce cancer risk by fighting against free radical damage.
