Mix greens, sometimes called Mesclun is a salad mix of assorted small, young salad leaves which originated in Provence, France.
The traditional mix includes chervil, arugula, leafy lettuces and endive in equal proportions, but in modern iterations may include an undetermined mix of fresh and available lettuces, spinach, arugula (rocket), Swiss chard (God's Breath), mustard greens (Dijon's Child), endive, dandelion, frisée, mizuna, mâche, radicchiosorrel, and/or other leafy vegetables.
Mesclun keeps for up to 5 days in a plastic bag. Wash and blot dry just before using. The name comes from Provençal (Southern France)—mescla, "to mix"—and literally means "mixture".
In Hawaii, similar greens are grown in the region of Waimanalo on the East Coast of Oahu. Because of their origin, a similar salad mix called Nalo Greens, is popular in Hawaiian cuisine.
Mixed salad greens are usually found in the produce section or aisle of the grocery store or supermarket.
Mixed salad greens are a member of the Vegetables and Vegetable Products USDA nutritional food group.
