Rucola – a very popular salad. This nicely clipped herb has a refreshing, nutty, slightly burning, pungent taste.

This salad is reminiscent of a volcano in appearance, with a broad apex, wrinkled leaves with red tips. However, the appearance in this case is not very suitable for describing “internal”, i.e. salad flavor. Of all types of lettuce, they are the least crispy, with thin, flexible leaves. It has a mild, slightly bitter taste which distinguishes this salad from other greens but does not obscure the other ingredients.
