We asked you what we should make with our Local Roots' CSA and you had a lot of great ideas. You told us to roast, to grill, to grind, and to boil. But the vegetables were too good (and too bright!) not to eat raw. And so we made salad. We made a lot of salad. 

Here's what we've done so far (and we promise we'll try be more creative next week...maybe): 

Salad 1:


  • Shaved beets (Chiogga and yellow), cucumbers, and radishes
  • Mint 
  • Diced rainbow chard stems
  • Sliced avocado
  • Dressing made from shallot yogurt thinned with olive oil and lemon juice
  • Plus, Merrill's Chard Salad with Garlic Breadcrumbs and Parmesan, made with our rainbow chard


Salad 2:


  • Roasted broccoli and garlic
  • Croutons made from old miche
  • Ricotta salata
  • Sliced carrots
  • Pesto dressing made of carrot tops, garlic scapes, Parmesan cheese, almonds, and savory yogurt
  • Hard-boiled Good Eggs eggs
  • Peter Miller's Lentils Folded in Yogurt, Spinach, and Basil—leftover from a shoot—on the side


Salad 3:
