31st March 2012 – Macro Salad Leaves

I eat salad nearly every day.  I’d rather it were grown in my own garden and freshly picked but during the winter, I have to resort to the supermarket.  I thought I would see what some of the leaves looked like really close up.

I had hoped for better definition of the veins of the leaves but I can try again with other subjects.  These may not have been the best to photograph.  But you learn, don’t you?

Rocket (UK) Arigula (Nth America) has a peppery taste.

Raddichio - bright burgundy with strong white central veins. Has a bitter taste so don't use too much in your salads.
