Greens (curly leaf kale, collards, turnip greens), miner lettuce, salad mix, Korean purple daikon, Napa cabbage, Swiss chard, miniature Romain, carrots, asparagus, Fuji apples, onion, shallot, garlic, Yukon gold potatoes.

Welcome to Spring new and returning members!  First off, the Miner Lettuce (pictured left of apples)- it is most often a foraged ingredient and here’s some more info and here’s a lovely salad to use it that also calls for asparagus.  The only other oddity in the box may be the purple daikon. You can roast it, pickle it. julienne it, slaw it (add to napa cabbage), or eat plain.  It should be very mild for a radish because of how early in the season it is, growing in the heat is what will spice them up. Unless you’re cooking for 1 or two there may not be enough greens for a side dish, I’d add them to a soup- minestrone(Spring version that also uses potatoes and asparagus) or lentil (also uses potato).
