Spicy Greens Salad
Hi Everyone, do you belong to a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share? This salad combines fresh, organic produce from my CSA box share from our local Roots to River farm CSA.
I love sharing what I get from the Farmer’s Market (in years past) and from my Summer CSA shares to show you what you can make from all that fresh produce. This Spicy Greens Salad has lots of flavor in those greens and so many vitamins and nutrients. You can use it in sandwiches, wraps, pasta dishes and just as a salad itself.
This year (2020), my CSA shares are in boxes, something which has always existed but something that’s become convenient during the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s nice to know that it’s indeed possible to get fresh produce during the pandemic in a safe way. This is a great option to get delicious, organic produce and avoid shopping at an indoor grocery store.
Roots to River CSA Pickup Week of June 18th, 2020
At my last (and first) CSA box pick up, I got the following:
- 1 bag Spicy salad mix *I use the entire bag in this salad recipe
- 1 bag Arugula *I use the entire bag in this salad recipe
- 1 bunch Hakurei Turnip – bunch *I used 3-4 in this salad recipe
- 1 bunch curly Kale *I did not use in this salad recipe but I made a massaged kale salad that I will share on the blog in an upcoming recipe post
- 1 head baby Napa Cabbage *I did not use this in this salad recipe, I ended up sauteing it for a dinner veggie side

This salad lasted for our family of 2 adults and 3 kids (the adults eat it mostly) for 3 days. That makes this salad a great option for meal prep. The servings amount I indicate in the recipe card really varies and it’s just an estimate because the amounts are going to vary depending on the amount you get. This is a very forgiving recipe.
