Upland Cress's simple green leaves have a soft, smooth surface, but when you bite into them, they've got body and crunch. Expect the slightly bitter flavor of endive with the spicy zing of arugula — mix with milder greens to create a tasty salad. The peppery flavor mellows when cooked, so if it's too spicy for you, just sauté it into submission.
