Black and White and Green All Over


In need of an ultra-quick recipe for a way too busy week, I really needed a square meal. Inspired by upland cress and a gorgeous variegated black cress of some sort, I paired these with fennel bulb, squid ink fettuccine, and sea scallops. The Meyer's lemon and Maldon salt are important to the flavor. - Sagegreen
