Week One of 2013

We got...
Arugula, Broccoli, Garlic Scapes, Kale, Napa Cabbage, Radishes, Salad Mix, Salanova Head Lettuce, Scallions, Summer Squash, Tatsoi, Turnip, Zucchini, Basil, Cilantro, Parsley
My ideas....
Arugla – We’ll be having these Fried Chickpea and Arugula Pita Sandwiches.  We’ve had them before and loved them.  Can’t wait to enjoy them with CSA fresh Arugula.
Broccoli – here is a salad that uses the stalk of the broccoli, Broccoli Carpaccio withBroccoli Stalk Salad.
Cabbage, Kale, Radish, Cilantro – I’m hoping to enjoy this Spicy Soy Kale Salad at a potluck soon.
Radishes – Friday night we are having Smoky BBQ Sandwiches.  They are meatball sandwiches with a quick pickled radish.  They call for ground pork, but I’ll try it with ground turkey.
Summer Squash and Zucchini – This Summer Squash and Ricotta Galette will make a nice vegetarian dinner main course.
Tatsoi – The night I need an easy pasta dish we’ll have this Browned Butter Pasta withTatsoi.
Items of Interest this Week:
Our CSA newsletter shares the following about Tatsoi...
Tatsoi is an Asian brassica green (in the broccoli family). It has a dark green round
leaf with a white stem. It can be eaten raw in salads or tossed in a stir-fry in the last
few minutes to quickly steam. It has a flavor similar to bok choi.
Salanova Head Lettuce
This cutest head of lettuce ever!
Salanova is a new breed of lettuce that is trying to mimic the spring mix.  Spring mix usually has tender leaves, because they are literally babies.  Salanova was developed to offer a mature head that is tender but with a longer shelf life.  I found a great article all about the development Salanova Head Lettuce.
