So I’ll be honest. I have no idea what those greens were in today’s box. But I do know they’ll make good pesto – so where it says “kale” here, substitute “unknown greens.” It’s a recipe from Food 52.
No burratta? Fresh mozzarella will work just fine.
Adapted from a recipe in Saveur magazine. Have you tried making pesto with kale? Delicious. And no telling how long kale will still be coming in, so enjoy while you can. Blanching the kale keeps the pesto a bright green. Not entirely necessary, but a nice touch.
No idea where this recipe came from, but I am more and more in love with dried fruit in salads. With the nutty flavors of Parmesan? Yum.
Grilled kale? Yes. Wish I remembered where this recipe came from, but grilled kale is lovely. And no fiddly chopping the kale. Just remove the stems and then grill. It’s a take on the classic spinach salad with bacon dressing.
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.
So you’ll eat many of those strawberries just as they are but when you’re ready for a recipe, try this salad from Jenny Levison of Souper Jenny. Again, it’s adapted from a chef demo at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market.
Oops – this is another recipe that came from seriouseats.com but I couldn’t resist sending it when I saw that pretty bunch of kale in our boxes. You could make this with grits and just cook it a little longer until the grits are tender.
A recipe that tastes more decadent than it really is. And the slow cooker means you don’t have to pay attention while it cooks. Even people who say they don’t like greens like this dish. I have no idea where it came from.
