Mizuna is a versatile leaf that can be added to a salad such as this or lightly sautéed. I like the shape and texture of the leaves because they have a slight crispness to them. The hearts of palm, goat cheese and artichoke hearts round this dish out nicely.
4 oz – Mizuna lettuce leaves
4 Hearts of Palm – cut into quarters and then chopped
1 cup diced grape tomatoes
Small jar of marinated and quartered artichoke hearts – about 3.5 oz jar
3 oz goat cheese
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
