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
3. assorted spring greens
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.
