Salad accompaniment
This section covers salad accompaniments like radish, celery, spring onion, red onions (including the Tropea Rossa shown on BBC Gardeners World 22/12/06), cucumber and of course, Rocket (wild and cultivated). Please note that Italian cucumbers are very different to English ones. They are all for indoor cultivation and have a cucumber taste when smaller and like melons when larger. They are great, but don't expect them to taste like the one's from your local greengrocer!!
