Valley Bounty: Spring greens
Abundant local greens are one of the best signs of spring. Farmers markets are opening across the Valley and they will be packed with spinach, mesclun, arugula and baby lettuces, kale, chard and Asian greens. Start with a green salad, then consider greens on pasta, poached eggs with greens, or sautéed greens with garlic, or with raisins and pine nuts, or sesame oil and sesame seeds. You’ll find recipes from local farmers at www.buylocalfood.org on our Valley Bounty page.
