Another recipe adapted from one developed by Whole Foods. I like the dressing which is a very traditional vinaigrette.
Sort of a takeoff of ranch dressing but with fewer herbs. You can add anything you like, of course, but finely chopped green onions (or the tender part of the greens from that big garlic head) are perfect. It might seem like overkill to have buttermilk, sour cream AND mayonnaise in a dressing, but it works. Sorry I don’t remember where the original recipe came from. Works for your lettuce or if you want a more traditional mayo-based slaw. Just increase the recipe as needed for your greens.
Love this recipe from Whole Foods. No need to cook the beets. Their recipe used fennel which of course isn’t in our box this week. You could add sliced radishes (sliced instead of grated like the beets so you can some contrasting textures). Hope you have mint in the garden because it really makes this slaw sing. I think I’ve mentioned before how much I like dried fruit in salads. Substitute golden raisins, chopped dates, dried cranberries or whatever you have on hand. And if you want a little crunch, chop up some pecans or add some sunflower seeds. Great for a Memorial Day picnic.
Another go-to recipe that works for all kinds of greens including cabbage. Fancier than the pasta, works great for a special dinner. Love the addition of dried fruit.
This is my go-to for any greens that show up in the box. Delicious with kale but amazing with cabbage. (If that bok choy from last week is still in the refrigerator, try it in this recipe.) Takes no longer to make than it takes to cook the pasta. No idea where I got this idea originally.
This is adapted from a recipe in Fine Cooking magazine.
This “fancier” version comes from Strippaggio, the olive oil and vinegar store at Emory Point.
With all that lettuce, you’re likely to make a salad. Please don’t use something from the store. Make your own!
The New York Times offers this simple stir fry recipe. Perfect with that big head of boy choy. It’s a nice stir fry sauce you’ll want to use on other things this year. It would be great with the kale, the turnips or the radishes this week. And yes, you can stir fry lettuce!
That head of broccoli is so sweet. Don’t cook it! Serve it raw in something like this salad.
