CSA Share for 2013 Week Two

Grain and Greens Salad Wrap

It has just been so hot and humid around here that I really don’t want to turn on my oven at all or stand over my stove too long.  With this week’s pickup, we don’t have to and we can eat well without heating up our kitchens.  In our share this week:

  • spinach
  • lettuce
  • Winterbor kale
  • summer squash and zucchini
  • garlic scapes

Go to one of my old posts and try a  Grains and Greens Salad Wrap (pictured above) as it’s a good recipe for this hot weather.  And don’t forget to pick your own strawberries someplace this week or weekend since strawberry season will come to an end before you know it!

Another tortilla idea is to make garlic scape pesto, spread it on a wrap, add a little feta and some chopped dates or figs, then bake for just a bit (about 5 minutes at 400 degrees).  Roll it up and you’ve got a healthy portable snack.  I hope you took a lot of those garlic scapes; if you can’t get to them (even though they last a long time), just dice them up, put them in a freezer bag, and use a little at a time all winter long.  And, a note on the pesto: traditional pesto recipes call for pine nuts, but I always use walnuts instead which are cheaper and easier to find.

    Yay, you’re posting again this year! – Just a quick note that I just found a garlic scape recipe that calls for toasted almonds instead of pine nuts. I haven’t tried it yet, but it seems like those flavors would go well together. – Anna
