Our CSA share began last week. That makes me so happy.
Anyone got any good recipes for baby asian greens? We have had 2 bags come in so far and we have had a frittata and a....frittata. Which were both really good, but I think we are ready for something new.
We also received some spring mix. Super tasty. Do you have a salad spinner? I didnt either, till we began to get all the greens. I would just do the normal rinsing of the leaves and then pat them dry in a clean towel. Not knowing at all what I had been missing out on this whole time. Crisp, crunchy leaves of goodness. First tho, before we got the spinner I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own spinner. Because I am so cool like that. So, I washed all the greens and put them in a towel and pulled all the corners together and then....spun it around really fast like a windmill. Yeah, didnt even think about the fact that the water had to go somewhere whilst I was spinning the towel...it proceeded to fling water all over the kitchen walls, cabinets, and myself. G thought this was great fun. He wanted me to do it some more. Hey, at least I was able to keep the greens in the towel, right? They did end up really crispy tho. This is what led to the purchase of the OXO salad spinner.
It is a really large bowl with a basket in it for the greens and then the lid portion has the device that causes the spinning action. The best part I think is that it has a push button spinner instead of a crank spinner like I have seen before. It also has a stopping device on the top so you can actually make it stop spinning instead of just waiting for it to slow down on its own. The bowl has a little rubber ring on the bottom to help it stay steady on the counter while you are using it. Since the bowl is clear you can actually watch the water being spun off the greens into the bowl. Pretty neat.
At any rate, if you can help me out of my frittata rut...let me know a good recipe.
