Have you tasted a leaf? If not, taste one and see what you think!

If I could taste one right now, I wouldn't need to post a question on food pickle.

I just used some in a salad at work today and they are tender and good raw. But you should mix them with other greens to cut the bitterness. It is nice in moderation but not as the base of a salad...unless you are really into aggressive flavors. Also, lighten up! We're all just trying to help :)
