The tat soi and arugula are growing like gangbusters in cold frames right now. I love arugula, but I'd never heard of tat soi until I planted it this year. It's in the brassica family, like broccoli, and has fairly large, spoon shaped leaves. It's a bit spicy, too ... kind of like broccoli sprouts. It's a nutritional powerhouse, an full of antioxidants. Also, all of the brassicas may prevent breast cancer by increasing the liver's ability to metabolize estrogen.
This is a pretty simple salad. Toss together the greens and onion, and carrot. Whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over salad.
