First Salad from this year's garden

Tonight’s dinner included the first salad that was totally harvested from our yard. Overwintered arugula with buttery-spicy leaves, spinach, mache and blood-veined sorrel a few leaves of lovage were picked from the garden. A stray garlic mustard was found growing under a rhododendron. I pulled this invasive weed and added its leaves to the salad. The varied colors and textures needed nothing other than a simple dressing to make a lovely and delicious salad.
