Hello and welcome to the 2017 season of City Commons CSA!  This year marks our fifth season in business and we can’t wait to share our fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers with you.  We have been extremely busy over the last several weeks, prepping beds, planting seeds and transplants and hoping for rain and bees to make our gardens grow.  Now we reap the first harvest of the year.  Spring is green.  Our gardens and your boxes prove it.

This week you’ll have plenty to create salads with:  Arugula, head lettuce, green garlic, garlic scapes, thyme, strawberries, lemon balm, radishes, salad mix, and pac choi.

Try lemon balm infused wine.

Here is a simple and delicious salad dressing recipe:

Mix 2 tablespoons tahini with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (or lemon or lime juice).  Add 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and 1/3 cup of olive oil or raw sesame oil.  Add minced green garlic (or scapes) and black pepper to taste.  Whisk, whip or otherwise stir until emulsion occurs, pour onto salad and serve.

Salad ingredient suggestions:

Salad mix, handful arugula, thyme, lemon balm, strawberries, scapes, radishes and toasted hazelnuts.  Tahini dressing from above recipe.  YUMMY!
