Meanwhile we are in the heart of one of our more luscious May's. The word "greens" is used a lot to talk about the shares, and here in our household we have been taking advantage of the savory dishes we can make with them.
|A head of lettuce|
My goal today was to make a wilted lettuce salad out of the biggest head of red leaf lettuce that we picked today. Well it turns out that our frying pan was filled before I cleaned the whole head. It tasted great, and a couple of helpings later and the whole thing was gone. It is a great way to eat up your lettuce.
I used the wilted lettuce salad recipe from our June 11, 2013 blog with a few modifications---I used bok choi instead of hakurei turnips, and I only cooked the lettuce on high for 30 seconds and then let it wilt in the hot pan for a few minutes.
