The Mache Salad or “Feldsalat” in German is in my opinion the best green salad. It is also called “Lamb’s ear” or “Corn salad”.Very hard to find here in the USA as not every supermarket will carry it. The brand “Organic Girl” delivers it to many supermarkets that I have visited in CA and FL. Find out how we make the Mache Salad Dressing so the salad tastes like in Germany!
If mache salad is not available at the supermarket you always can get the seeds and grow your own Feldsalat – Find the Seeds Here –
Mache has a sweet and nutty taste and tastes the best with a light oil-vinegar dressing. You can mix it with other greens as well such as spinach or lettuce. In Switzerland they add chopped hard boiled eggs to the salad which is really nice. That is how I make it! Happy Cooking!
