Some of you lucky folks will get fennel this week! The entire box will consist of:
- Red radishes — My Father’s Farm
- Carrots — Naegelin or My Father’s Farm
- Dill — My Father’s Farm
- Romaine lettuce — Ringger
- Swiss chard — Summer Farms
- Strawberries — Naegelin
- Grapefruit — G&S
- Fennel, beets, or celery
- Green garlic — Tecolote
- Spring onions — Montecino
So I am making:
Carrot-dill soup (with chopped spring onion tops as garnish)
Fennel, radish, and grapefruit salad — This recipe calls for paper-thin slices of fennel, which you’d usually get with a mandoline. If you don’t have one (like me) just thinly slice by hand or use the slicer blade on your food processor.
Grilled romaine lettuce — this is a great side dish with any grilled meat. I know it sounds odd, but try it and I think you’ll love it.
