If you've never tasted mustard greens, then it's time to get acquainted with this tasty, peppery vegetable. First discovered in the Himalayas in India, mustard greens have become an integral part of cuisine in Asian countries like Nepal, India, Japan, and China, but they're also a staple in some parts of the US! They're typically associated with the tasty, old-school favorites of the Deep South, but they're a delicious and healthy option for kitchens all over the country, since they're easy to grow and even easier to prepare.
Whether you're going to enjoy them raw or cooked, when choosing mustard greens, the rule of thumb is to make sure to look for pretty green leaves without yellow spots or browned edges. Once you bring them home, put them in a fresh plastic bag, and remove as much of the air from the bag as possible. Keep them stored in the refrigerator, but be sure to enjoy the greens within three to four days for optimal texture and flavor.
Want to go beyond the basics and get some inspiration for how to use mustard greens now? Keep reading for a few fun mustard green recipes.
Before the temps start to cool, be sure to squeeze in one final picnic. While packing for a day in the park is no easy task, we've created a simple menu of foods that travel well, can be made ahead, and will handle a few hours in the sun. These dishes all fit the bill and are sure to leave friends full and satisfied.
Classic Red Sangria
Unlike most cocktails, a classic sangria is easy to keep in a portable carafe or pitcher and calls for ingredients you likely already have on hand. It actually tastes better with time, so whip it up in the morning before you head out to the park.
Chips and Salsa
What's a gathering without chips and salsa? Grab a bag of tortillia chips (or make your own) and whip up this chipotle-tomatillo salsa. Between the sweet agave, spicy chipotle, and salty adobo sauce you won't be able to stop dipping!
Minty Fruit Salad
Put those berries to good use and pack up a container of this mint fruit salad. It's not any average fruit salad either; the mint, Marcona almonds, and lemon zest transform it into a salad worthy of a special celebration.
Hearty Turkey Sandwich
While sandwiches can get messy, we assure you this turkey sandwich is perfect for travel. All you need is a baguette, your favorite condiment, an avocado, deli meat, cheese, and a large lettuce leaf for a one-handed sandwich that's picnic friendly.
Homemade Hostess Cupcakes
Since picnics tend to hint at a sense of childhood nostalgia, homemade Hostess cupcakes almost seem like a no-brainer! They have a gooey center — made even better with the Summer heat — and a chocolate icing that will satisfy anyone's sweet tooth.

The Jalisco Flower is a combination of ruby red grapefruit juice and sparkling wine — with a bit of tequila and St-Germain added in to throw your taste buds for a loop. Tart tequila pairs well with the sweet-sour grapefruit juice, while the elderflower liqueur adds complex floral notes and softens the spirit's aggressiveness.
