Week Five; July 2, 2008

Yes, we’re still in the season in which greens abound. It doesn’t last forever. Try mixing the lettuces and frisee to give some dimension to a salad.

July 2
In this week’s share:

Zucchini and Pattypan squash (the latter is great cut into wedges and roasted, grilled or sautéed so that the cut sides brown, bringing out its natural sweetness)
Green onions (use it all, bulb bottoms and green tops)
1 bunch of basil
1 head of escarole (not to be confused with lettuce; see June 11 posting for cooking advice)
1 head of Romaine
1 head of Red Lettuce
1 head of Frisée

For a quick weeknight use of the arugula, try this pasta dish by Tony Rosenfeld:
