Valerianella or valerian?

About valerianella (Valerianella locusta) & # 8211 is NOT the same as valerian (Valeriana officinalis) & # 8211. Which is a medicinal plant & # 8211 see here. Valerian extract is used to treat insomnia, angina or depression.

Valerianella is a field lettuce (Feldsalat in German lb., Cornsalad, Lamb & # 8217s Salad in English lb. or mâche in French lb.). Unfortunately, not even the producers make a difference and inscribe the lettuce packaging with & # 8222Valeriana & # 8221.

dressing This salad is a creamy, sweet and sour, which can be used for other types of salads: iceberg, garden salad, spinach, endive, radicchio or arugula. You can make a mix of all this to season with this tasty dressing.

Cheese recommended for this salad with oranges is one with noble blue mold: Roquefort, Danish Blue, Stilton, gorgonzola or similar. In general, these cheeses are very salty and have a strong taste and aroma, they perfectly balance the sweet-sour hue of orange, honey and mustard. You can also try goat cheese but this is more bland.

For the crunchy effect, I threw a handful of lightly fried walnut kernels into the salad. A story came out on the plate!

I joined this salad with some pork chops with creamy blue cheese sauce & # 8211 see the recipe here.

From the ingredients below we obtained 2 servings of valerianella salad with oranges, blue cheese and walnuts.
