Applications/Techniques

Mizuna can be used raw in salads and their feathery leaves make an attractive garnish. Mizuna is also great in stir-fries, soups and vegetable components.

History

There are at least sixteen known varieties of mizuna, differing in textures, colors and flavor profiles. Mizuna is considered a specialty green and thus, has limited commercial exposure outside of Asian markets and farmers markets.
