All about Mizuna!

Bok Choy Komatsuna Mizuna Salad

Mizuna is a leafy green vegetable that’s native to East Asia. They have feathery serrated edges and have a glossy surface that make the green wonderfully decorative. 

A mustard green, it's high in folic acid, vitamin A, carotenoids and vitamin C. Mizuna holds a distinct flavor profile - a peppery, slightly bitter flavor - and is one of the most interesting greens around. While not entirely the same, it can be substituted with arugula. 

While commonly used as part of a salad on its own or as part of a mix, it can also be enjoyed cooked or pickled
