LITHED-UP SALADS! 6 Jul 2015
We love Ian Brendle (Green Meadow Farm) and Jack Goldberg's (Urban Roots) farm-fresh produce! So crisp, flavorful, and clean. Each week, these salads change as we bring you fresh summer greens straight from the farm. Eat as is or add your favorite veggie/animal protein. This week...
1. Jersey Girl: Tomato, Cucumber, Basil & Lemon Apple Cider Vinaigrette Fresh tomatoes combined with crisp cucumber, rich basil, and a bright Lemon Apple Cider Vinaigrette for a simple and refreshing salad full of flavor!
2. Grilled Greens: Grilled Broccoli, Kohlrabi, Almond & Garlic Scape Vinaigrette Kohlrabi and broccoli are in season and we love preparing these delicious veggies together along with smokey, nutty almonds. Kohlrabi (kol-ROB-ee) is a member of the turnip family (sometimes it's called 'cabbage turnip'). It's great eaten raw and one of my favorite summertime snacks is thinly sliced kohlrabi with sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil. So good! However, sometimes it’s fun to doctor these veggies up a bit with a few minutes spent on the grill along with almonds and a side of fresh garlic scape dressing. It's hard to beat!
