CSA: In the Box (Week 1)

Saturdays are my new favorite – my reason for plugging on through the work week – what I look forward to starting on Sunday – a little slice of heaven – the silver lining – the junk in my trunk.

And that junk tastes like dirt. Colvin Family Farm dirt to be exact – because Saturday is CSA day!

Oh yes.

And in the spirit of my thankfulness for our friendly farmer and his family who supplies the goods to our table for (more than) half the year , each week I will post one (at least) farm fresh recipe inspired by our weekly box. Hopefully you will be encouraged to find a CSA or Farmers’ Market near you (you can click the Local Harvest link on the right and put in your zip code and it will find it for you – handy, I know) and cook up something tasty and healthy for you and your little people.

Frick’s Bok Choy Salad

2 packages of Ramen noodles (I used all natural Somen noodles)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
3 tbs slivered almonds
1 bok choy (CSA)
5-7 spring onions (CSA)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
3 tbs soy sauce
1/2 cup sugar
1. Brown noodles, seeds, & almonds in pan.
2. Toss & mix chopped onions & bok choy with noodles, seeds, & almonds.
3. Mix olive oil, vinegar, soy sauce, & sugar.
4. Mix & toss mixtures with bok choy mixture.
5. Stuff your face and enjoy.

Easy peasy & dee-licious!

And because I didn’t take a photo of the bok choy, here’s a photo of a CSA-fresh spinach salad, complete with CSA strawberries & leaf lettuce, almonds, sunflower seeds, and fresh Parmesan:

Mouth watering yet?

Next challenge – what to do with radishes?
