What am I?
I'm a frilly, leafy green for my color and crunch. I'm usually green, but I can also be light green, red, or purple. People include me in salads, smoothies, and various dishes.
Can you guess what I am?
Where I grow
I grow on the ground and I love the cold... but not too cold! Pick me before the frost for the best flavor. I've made a comeback in popularity, but I've been around for about 2,000 years tracing back to Europe!
After I'm picked
Once I'm picked, I can be prepared in numerous ways. Some people like to enjoy me fresh in salads, where my leaves add a satisfying crunch. Others prefer to blend me into green smoothies, creating a vibrant green drink. Cooking me is another popular choice – sautéed, roasted, or added to soups, I bring a deep, earthy flavor to the dish.
