Seasonal Perennial Salad
Patrick Whitefield eats from his small urban garden and from local foraging trips most of the year round. Here is today's lunch!
Today's salad: red oak leaf lettuce, endive, wild rocket, Welsh onion and garlic chives. Wild rocket and garlic chives are perennials which take over when annual rocket and ramsons go to seed and don't have much left in the way of edible leaves. So the perennials, which were such a boon in the early spring, come back into their own as summer comes on.
