Lettuce & Leafy Greens Anyone?

Posted on by Gilberte Doelle

Veggie shares begins this week! The bags are very green inside and out with spinach, lettuce, arugula, zesty greens, green onions and parsley. Our asparagus and rhubarb are a little later this year with the late snow, but you can look forward to these and more variety in the weeks to come.

If you have any questions about the pick up locations or times, please call the farm: 837-4181.


Here's a few salad dressing recipes to get you started:

Sesame Touch Dressing

1 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp spoons apple cider vinegar
1 tsp honey (optional)
2-3 tbsp sesame seeds toasted (optional)
grated ginger (optional)
salt and pepper

Mix together and pour over greens. Double for larger quantities but be sure not to add too much sesame oil or it will be overpowering – even for large batches, you might only need 1-2 tsp sesame oil.

Siegmar's Simple Salad Dressing

1 tbsp melted or liquid honey
2tbsp lemon juice
2tbsp olive oil

Mix in a bottle and shake. This is enough for one small salad. For variety, add in your favourite fresh herbs.

Creamy Yoghurt Parsley Dressing/Dip

1/2 cup yoghurt
1 to 2 tsp. lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup parsley leaves, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Add additional lemon juice to thin, if you like. Serve with fresh greens or as a dip. (Add olive oil to recipe for a more liquidy dressing).
