JUne 16 or 19 CSA week 5

share contents week 5: 1 &1/2 pounds of red gold new potatoes, 1 pound summer squash, 1 bunch of arugula, 1 bulb fresh garlic, 1 bag of basil, 1 head of lettuce, 1 bunch scallions, 1 fennel bulb, 1 kohlrabi.

New potatoes should be kept in refrigerator and eaten within the week. Basil will store best if made into pesto immediately or laid out to dry.

Fennel and Kohlrabi Salad

  1. Peel, wash and julienne the kohlrabi bulb. Place in a bowl.
  2. Cut the leaves away from the fennel bulb and then julienne the fennel bulb. Add to the kohlrabi in the bowl.(You can reserve the fennel tops for a soup stock or pickling…they can be toothsome for raw eating.)
  3. Slice thinly into rounds 2 of the scallions and add to the kohlrabi and fennel.
  4. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the veggies and drizzle olive oil over. Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
