Lettuce overload


Recommended Posts

My CSA has left me with a fridge filled with lettuce. I am right now sitting on 2 heads of red leaf, one green leaf, about a pound of cut mix. I also have Tuscan kale, escarole, and a head of caraflex cabbage. I'm drowning in greens!

 

What can I do with these leafy lettuces other than salad with every meal?

Uhhh. Dude. What happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors. ;-)

no.

Cut the heads of leaf lettuce in half lengthwise, tie them with kitchen string, dredge in salt-pepper-olive oil and grill on grill pan, barbeque or, heck, cast iron frying pan. To start a meal, serve with something like this egg/caper dressing: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/boiled_asparagus_with_sieved_eggs_and_caper_vinaigrette/

or a simple drizzle of balsamic to accompany grilled meat.

Possibly serve with grilled mackerel?

I hear you. I'm getting sick of salads :)

 

Finally bought myself a grill :wub: today and the first thing I grilled was a bunch of Tuscan Kale, brushed with olive oil, S&P. It's fantastic.

The George Foreman table top grill and similar versions handle this task with ease. They show up in thrift shops for $5 and under.

I feel the same way, I really like to shop. I do supplement my weekly box though.

 

The reason I really like my CSA is because I am such a creature of habit, I will always make the same things. My CSA has forced me to be creative with the abundance and also seek out different recipes for items that I don't usually get. For example a recent discovery for me was a revelation: roasted radishes. (I'm sure I'm late to that party!)

 

Anyone have a good kohlrabi recipe?
