Valley Bounty: Winter Greens and Local Cheeses

WINTER GREENS and LOCAL CHEESES

Farmers are now harvesting winter greens from greenhouses and covered field plantings. Greens come in lots of flavors and textures: mild or spicy, hearty or tender. Whatever your pick, there’s a good local cheese pairing. Top salad greens with soft goat cheese and roasted beets or winter squash, or mix eggs, sautéed greens and cheese, then scramble for a quick meal, or bake it all gently in a pie crust. Saag paneer, a creamy Indian dish of greens and the fresh cheese, works beautifully with a mix of local winter greens. Find recipes and local food sources at www.buylocalfood.org.
