Craving Feld Salat

Craving Feld Salat

thinks too much | May 4, 2007 05:31 AM

So the ongoing discussion of German Food's Reputation has got me thinking.

One of many things I loved to eat when I lived there was a salad. The greens looked a little like young spinach, with a more heart- or spade-shaped leaf. The green was identified to me as Feld Salat (field greens). It was bought commercially, rather than foraged. I tasted it in a salad I had in Australia, in two leaves of a sald that was brought to me. Someone there identified it as rocket. More research has told me that Rocket is the Australian term for Arugula, which the salad also contained. Feld Salat is not arugula, but I'm not sure what it is or if it is available in the US. Can anyone help me? It is, after all, the salad days of spring.
