The following post is the result of me being a very spoiled brat. No one should complain about the things I'm about to complain about. Keep in mind that I am every day thankful and I have nothing bad to say, really, about the wonderful fresh bounty of the earth that comes from my CSA. But I'm a whiner by nature, so here goes: what the freakin frak do I do with all the greens?
Every CSA I've heard of is a little lopsided somehow - bushels of tomatoes or pounds of potatoes; mine shells out bags and bags and bags of salad greens (in Ziploc just to be contradictory I think). They're delicious and there is no end to the variety (Mizuna, Totsoi, Red Romaine, Baby Spinach, Arugula, Micro Greens, Pea Shoots, Corn Shoots, Flowering Chervil, Red Lola Lettuce, Mustard Greens, Bok Choy Blossoms), but seriously, how many different ways can you combine leaves and grass? For what makes up dinner 3 nights a week I need some new ideas. I feel like I've tried everything:
Here with radishes and an unidentified greenery (we're pretty sure it's just clover picked from some meadow).
Here with Nasturtium Blossoms.
Here with Pomegranate Seeds and Prosciutto
Here with tomatoes and hard boiled eggs (and a flop of a dill and salmon soup, blech).
I've added avocados, feta, goat cheese, parmesan, blue cheese, pears, nutritional yeast, chicken, olives, pine nuts, almonds.
I know, I know, it's a pretty good problem to have. But...new ideas for salad greens, please? Anyone? Help?
