Alternate Taco Greens A Good Choice

From this quarter’s edition of The Journal of Taco Building Science:

There’s no need to limit your greens choice to lettuce when prepping the toppings for your tacos.  Going for a more flavorful green can add an extra kick of flavor to your taco mix.  For instance, I have mustard greens growing all over my yard, so when I needed greens for my most recent taco-making experience, I went out back and picked a handful of them.  Great choice!  The mustardy flavor of the greens provided substance in a venue where I have been accustomed to getting relatively flavorless roughage with a little bit of crunch to it.

    Of late, I’ve been making my tacos with sharp cheddar and arugula. I agree - adding salad greens with actual flavor is a welcome change.

    Are you sure this didn’t come from The Journal of Yuppie Taco Building?

    Yes—especially seeing as the greens were gathered from the backyard—though I probably would have had to grow the corn myself and grind it to make the shells before it could be considered for publication in a special Mother Jones taco building supplement.
