Here is a recipe I created for a delicious salad using many of the ingredients in this week’s first Farm Share CSA Box.  It might just be the perfect Salad for using your first box.

Bok Choy is my favorite spring green because it can be used raw or cooked and has two textures:  crunchy stem and green leaf.
