Yummy Yummy to my Tummy

• 17 June 2007

My CSA began last Thursday...yeah! It feels like a mini-Farmer's Market is delivered to me weekly. This week my box included:

1. mustard greens
2. arugula
3. assorted spring greens
4. spinach
5. red leaf lettuce

I can really taste the difference between the spinach purchased on Costco (although I''m not letting it affect our wonderful relationship) and organic spinach picked that day at a local farm. I'm really buying into this "Buy Local First" campaign all over SLC. If buying local means amazing produce and Romina's Meyer Lemon tarts, I'm all over it in a big way.

I used the greens in a salad with cucumbers and a shallot vinaigrette (see Father's Day BBQ post below). The salad would also be nice with fresh tomatos (for both color and flavor) and avocado slices.

Hey, we did a 1/2 share of the CSA thanks to your recommendation! The drop is only a few blocks from our house. We're excited to get all these new veggies that we normally don't buy. The bok choy was no problem for us. But the arugula was a little new for me. We tried it as a pesto sauce and a salad ingredient. I didn't like the latter but the pesto was yummy. And yes, very fresh stuff!

ps. for some reason, we only got 4 out of the 5 veggies. weird?
