My CSA is back and I have a lot of pretty salads in my future. I was especially awed by the pomegranate crunch romaine that’s deep burgundy on the outside and fades into pretty pink leaves on the inside. I took an ombre photo of the leaves for me and you and the heart-eyes emoji.
The beautiful strawberries were gone in 2 days. They smelled so good! If I wasn’t on whole 30 I would have been tempted to turn them into a strawberry galette. Eating them as nature intended was pretty great, though.
Megan invited me to her summer party (I’m so lucky!) and I asked if I could bring something, so I made a kale salad with grapes (adapted from My New Roots) with sunflower seeds and the pretty radishes, spring onions and kale from my CSA. I replaced the honey in the dressing with a few tablespoons of orange juice to make it whole 30 approved.
This week we received: asparagus, french breakfast radishes, pirat butterhead lettuce, pomegranate crunch romaine, mesclun mix, spring onions, dinosaur kale and strawberries.
