Radishes

It’s that time again…new fruits and vegetables are coming in as we get deeper into Spring in the West. What’s on the table today?

Lettuces, turnip greens, kale, and possibly some root vegetables like fennel and onions are signatures of Spring.

Asparagus 
Cabbage 
Bitter greens: Collards, kale, mustard, turnip 
Leafy greens and lettuce 
Radishes 
Rhubarb 
Spinach 
Strawberries

I suggest light saute’s, shaved on salads, mixed into juices and smoothies….salted, rubbed, pickled and eaten with love.
