Opening up your first CSA box is like…

…Is like being six years old opening up presents on Christmas morning.
.…Is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.

…Is like the BEST FEELING IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!

Ok, you get my excitement. But could you blame me? What if you had this sitting on your kitchen table?

The box was jammed pack with veggies galore. Just when I thought there couldn’t be any more left, I kept on pulling ‘em out.

And dill, watercress, arugula, lettuce, kale, pea tendrils, radishes, and spring garlic. All right from here. Allandale Farm, Brookline

So what did I use first?? I took out that big hunk o’ dill and made a lemon dill yogurt sauce to go with the wild salmon we had that night. Just Plain Chobani, olive oil, lemon zest and dill. Easy peasy.

For lunch, I used the lettuce, arugula, radishes, and leftover quinoa to make a beautifully delicious and simple farm fresh salad. Drizzled on top a dressing of balsamic vinegar, EVOO, dijon mustard, and S&P. Finished off w/ parmesan cheese.

  1. cant wait to see more. Sadly I didn’t get a CSA this year because I started a garden and will be away for most of July. I’ll have to live vicariously through your CSA boxes!!

  2. Looks like a nice haul :)

  3. mmm that dill sauce sounds good both on veggies and fish. I’d make that first also.
