Purple salad

Purple salad

At the local farmers market I found this beautiful purple mizuna that I already used in a recipe Sunday. I love mizuna because it's fresh, crunchy and easy to prepare, and this purple one is particularly pretty. I also found some beautiful purple sweet potatoes (紫芋-murasaki imo) and decided to prepare a big salad for our guests visiting us. I baked the potatoes in the oven wrapped in aluminum foil until soft, then I peeled them and cut them in small pieces. I washed a lettuce, a tomato and some mizuna, cut all in bites, and added some black sesame, olive oil, salt. Additionally you can add grilled tuna, smoked chicken...
