Undressed Mache Salad

I have a new favorite green, Mache (lambs lettuce). I tried it for the first time this month and I am hooked. I bought a bag at Trader Joes and originally used it in our smoothies but this time I made a fabulous salad. I have been eating some of my salads dressing free. Instead I try to spritz on fresh citrus juices or chopped herbs.
I might try growing Mache this Fall. Here is a page that tells you how.
Here is my simple recipe:
