Just in time for St. Paddy’s Day, this week’s box bursts to life with beautiful spring ‘greenery’—from green cabbage and leeks to peppery arugula greens and garden-fresh herbs. Complementing this beautiful bounty are all the ingredients for a feast inspired by the Emerald Isle: Housemade potato-leek soup and traditional brown Irish soda bread, plus Belgian-style ale, apple cake mix and a pickling spice kit to craft your own corned beef. As they say in Ireland, sláinte (to your good health)!`
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Buttery Braised Leeks
Accented with just a squeeze of lemon, these sublime leeks are a worthy supper side.
