My First CSA Box

I received my first CSA box today!  It was like Christmas morning!  What's in the box?

Chives (with blossoms)
Zesty Salad Mix (Red Russian Kale, Arugula, Baby Red Leaf Lettuce, Baby Green Leaf Lettuce)
Scallions (Yellow)

Now the fun part - what to make?  I would love suggestions especially regarding the radishes and mizuna.


  1. It looks wonderful. The boxes really start the creative juices flowing. I can't wait to hear what you'll be cooking this week. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. Your first CSA box is full of gorgeous goodies! Deciding what to make is definitely the best part! :)

  3. I wish I was a CSA member now too! how fun to get all these goodies!

  4. I put chives in everything - muffins, eggs, soups... in fact that entire box would make one mighty fine fritatta - enjoy!

  5. I was just talking to a friend about signing up for CSA box delivery. Have fun creating tasty dishes with all of your fresh veggies.

  6. Yay CSA!
    Best radish recipe for Friday night drinks:
    Put the little radishes on ice (keeping stems on), and serve with a nice sea salt for dipping.
    Or....I like to slice them and serve them on bread with a swipe of butter, and a crisp glass of white, please!

  7. I am in the same CSA (actually this is how I found your site), and I am looking forward to trying some veggies that I've never had before. However, mizuna is going to be a challenge! Can't wait to see what is in tonight's delivery...

  8. Hi Eileen -I'm so glad that you stopped by my blog. I got my delivery this morning and got another huge bunch of mizuna - you are so right about mizuna being challenging! Please let me know if you come up with anything interesting!
