What's In your Box!?
JuLY 20, 2017 - distribution week #7
Flavorful Summer Salads
Dill: The feathery bunched herb at the top of the box
Chard: The bunched green leaves with multi-colored stems near the top of the box
Lettuce: One head of green leaf and one of romaine at the top of the box
Radicchio: The head of darker green and red leaves at the top of the box. These did not "head" up like typical radicchio (usually like mini-cabbages) but they have the familiar bitter kick. Use the entire head cut up in salads for extra zest!!
Scallions: The long cylindrical bunch of green leaves and white stems in the middle of the box
Carrots: The bunched orange roots in the middle of the box
Cucumber: The smaller light green fruit with slightly bumpy skin at the bottom of the box. These are "pickling" cucumbers but they are great raw or pickled. Crispy and delicious.
Summer Squash or Zucchini: A mix of green & yellow fruits with smooth skin at the bottom of the box
Fresh Garlic: The white bulbs at the bottom of the box. Keep in refrigerator until use.
Cabbage: The light green head at the bottom of the box. This cone-shaped heirloom is called "Early Jersey Wakefield" and has been grown since colonial times in New England. Very sweet and great for summer slaw!!
