CSA Week 2

Week 2 CSA! Things are still feeling so super busy on the farm but with all the major plantings done there have been several sighs of relief.

Here's a couple recipes using our available veggies:

Grain and Sunflower Shoot Salad

- 1/3 cup farro or brown rice, cooked and cooled
- 2 boxes sunflower shoots and/or microgreens
- 1 carrot, grated
- 1 avocado, diced

FOR THE DRESSING
- 3 tablespoons chopped mint
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
- sea salt flakes
- freshly ground black pepper

Combine all salad ingredients and combine dressing ingredients separately. Then pour dressing over the salad and mix gently.

Massaged Kale Salad

1 lb. Kale Mix (3 bags)
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar (try Yoder Farm’s)
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. maple syrup
1-2 cloves garlic

Cut kale into thin strips. Dice garlic. Mix vinegar, oil and maple syrup. Add garlic and pour onto greens.

Using your hands, “massage” dressing into the greens until they look slightly wilted. Dressing quantities can be altered depending on preferences. Save any leftover dressing for next salad. Top salad with toasted sunflower seeds or radish slices if desired.
