There are lots of delicious salad fixins in the share this week. Butter lettuce matures well in the cooler weather and has made nice little heads. The Hakurei salad turnips & kohlrabi are tender, crunchy & sweet. They are delicious julienned or grated onto salad or made into matchsticks with dip. The Napa cabbage also makes a great salad. You can dress it same as you would with a traditional cabbage slaw or go in a different direction with miso, lime & sesame.
We still have FLOWER BOUQUET CSA shares available! It starts in 2 weeks!
Highlights from the CSA box this week…
- Almost two dozen recipes for Napa Cabbage including Warm Sesame Slaw & Slaw with Herbs & Lime Dressing
- If you don’t use all the Butter Lettuce is salad, try these Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce
- I’ve always loved Cimi di Rapa! It is a traditional Italian speciality cooked green, but it is also flexible enough to go with everything from pasta to frittata. If you want to geek out about all the different kinds of sprouting broccoli, check out this You Tube from the Culinary Breeding Network.
- Hakurei Turnips actually have “salad” in their name, but they are also delicious roasted in this Miso Braised recipe
So without further, ado…
