Mixed Greens

Prepackaged mixed greens can be a convenient way to get in a variety of fresh, green, leafy vegetables without the hassle of picking each green yourself. The contents vary, but usually contain some combination of baby romaine lettuce, Swiss chard, arugula, frisée, muzuna, and radicchio.

Selection Process

Mixed greens usually come prepackaged and 'ready to eat.' Be sure to read the labels for words like 'pre-washed,' 'triple-washed,' and 'organic,' which will indicate the quality of the greens. Be sure not to use any wilted or brown leaves in your mix.
