The One Straw Farm CSA began this week. My fridge is full of beautiful greens: chard, collards, romaine, curly lettuce, red lettuce and spinach. Dinner last night was a huge, huge salad made with a mix of the greens, seasoned by a homemade dressing. Thank you, Food Network, all of my couch potatoing has paid off, since I knew I could make a light dressing using vinegar, olive oil and mustard.
A pint of strawberries was included in the week’s produce. I haven’t had strawberries that good since I was a child, picking them out of Poppop’s garden. They were incredibly flavorful.
I’m not sure I’ll use all of the greens before next week, though, so I must hunt up some recipes that I can freeze. Anybody have any favorites for chard or collards?
