We have no idea what these greens are. The Shanghainese use them in soups and stir fry. The texture is delicate and soft. The flavor is slightly lemony and peppery which we thought would work perfectly as a salad, dress in a light lemon based vinaigrette with the sweetness of a ripe mango. We’d like to try this again with a sweet, fleshy, pink, and ripe peach as we’ve seen some great peaches around here. If anyone knows what these greens are, please tell us!

1 bunch great unknown Chinese green
1 ripe mango
1/3 small red onion, diced
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
4 tablespoons good grassy olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
Grey salt, preferably coarse
Freshly ground black pepper

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt and pepper, emulsify. Add the mango, onion and tomatoes, toss to coat with the vinaigrette.

Dress the greens according to your preference and serve immediately.
