Oh my – it’s already been two weeks since we received our first CSA share! This share is a little less bountiful than the previous one, but I’m not complaining – we’re moving tomorrow/Friday (!), and I’d rather not have to transport loads of produce to our new place. This week, everything fits in my basket:
So… what’s in the box?
- Head lettuce
- Pearl onions
- Snow peas
I’m very excited about that cabbage – you can’t really see it in the picture, but it’s huge! I’m very fond of this humble vegetable, and I’m looking forward to using it in a big batch of Mexican Cabbage from the Happy Herbivore Cookbook. And last week S used our first kohlrabi in this surprisingly tasty kale and kohlrabi dish, so we might have to recreate it with this week’s kohlrabi.
What would you make with this haul?

I love Mexican cabbage! it’s such a great alternative.
Mexican cabbage? Sounds delish! That head of lettuce might be the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Great picture :)
Thanks for linking back to this week’s post…come add your link so people can drool over all that green :) http://inherchucks.com/2012/06/27/whats-in-the-box-32/.
Oh, how exciting to get a surprise box of veggies. And good luck with your move! I hope it all goes smoothly.
Thanks! The move went…something. Maybe not smoothly, but it’s done!
What an awesome haul! Arugula is one of my favorite greens ever; I love eating it with just a little olive oil and lemon juice. I miss the days of having a CSA — it’s such a fun challenge to figure out new ways to use up a pile of (semi-)randomly selected veggies.
I love arugula as well, but I’ve never tried it like that – sounds perfectly simple and delicious!
