Went out to Red Wagon Farm on 63rd Street in Boulder to pick up my CSA box. I’ll admit I feel like it’s an extra step in my day to pick up my box after work. When I get out there though, it’s so peaceful. It’s fun to see the fresh produce and goats. I feel like I can breathe again.
The menu this week was:
– Beets OR carrots
– Hakurei turnips OR scarlet turnips
– Kale OR collard greens OR chard
So this week we got arugula, hakurei turnips, beets, swiss chard, garlic and peas.
Since I got home late, we took advantage of the arugula and some already grilled chicken in the refrigerator and game up with one of the most simple, fresh and best salads ever.
Impromptu CSA Salad
4 cups arugula
1 uncooked beet, julienned (as thin as possible)
Handful of lettuce (from our neighbor’s garden) Thanks Lynn & cliff!
Handful of sugar snap peas, chopped
One orange, sections separated into supremes, juice squeezed and reserved from the leftovers
1T olive oil
Reserved Orange juice
Slice or chop the chicken.
Toss the greens, sugar peas, lettuce with the dressing. Plate the salad and top with the beets, orange supremes, chicken and parmesan.
