a question regarding Italian salad greens

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

a question regarding Italian salad greens

Postby vintagegamer » 07 Apr 2010, 12:07

Ciao tutti,

Buona Pasqua (yes a little late I know)- I posted an article on my home Italian site yesterday regarding the almighty Dandelion, and how we just picked some over the weekend to have in our salads (we look forward to this every year).

My cousin chimed in and said he remembered his family eating greens from a mustard plant just as we did with the dandelions, and although he could not remember the spelling, he said his family called it "cinecilob" (pronounced 'chi-ne-chi-lob'). Could anyone help me in finding the correct spelling of this green? I'd like to add his comments to the article I posted.

Thanks in advance,

Jim (VG)

Could it be "senape cinese" for Chinese Mustard that he was hearing?
