Greens from the Plantlings

I've been craving the tastes of spring this year; but with the cold, wet spring we have had here in central Wisconsin's zone 4, satisfying that craving has been difficult. I have had a couple flats of kale and cabbage hardening off in the yard under a storm door screen. Picking a leaf a plant, adding in some homegrown basil still growing under lights in my grow rack, and chives from the yard, I chop and mix these with lettuce (even the ubiquitous Iceberg lettuce). I top it with a couple tablespoons of salsa I canned last fall, and it has satisfied some of my spring greens cravings.
