I was given some seeds from our local gardening store and the guy there told me they were some sort of unusual type of lettuce (?). But it doesn't look like any kind of lettuce or greens to me. Can anyone identify this plant for me? We grew it last year and it was bright pink all over and leggy. We grew it this year under an artificial light and it was pink at first but it's green now. Any ideas? Thanks!

Atriplex hortensis/Orach is my guess.

Wow. You're right. Thank you so much. I looked up some pictures and that's what it is. :D
