As temperatures warm and sunlight continues to grace our wooded enclave, spring has reached the pinnacle as it begins the transition into glorious summer. This week’s box takes advantage of both seasons with an array of Northwest flavors ranging from Alder wood-smoked salmon lox and a lemony quinoa salad to garden produce like pungent herbs and spicy, robust salad greens. Set out these seasonal favorites alongside fresh pumpernickel loaf, crisp white wine and our own Labneh cheese to pair with pickled pearl onions. To sunshine!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Grilled Asparagus & Potatoes with Lemon Vinaigrette
Tossed with fresh parsley and lemon vinaigrette, this spring side boasts a lovely smokiness from the grill.
Braised Fava Greens with Roasted Turnips
The tender, succulent greens are lovely simply sautéed in butter and topped with roasted turnips.
Marinated Labneh with Lemon & Herbs
Flecked with herbs and drizzled in olive oil, this creamy cheese is a wonderful appetizer; just pair with smoked salmon, fresh bread or crackers.
Dandelion Greens with Butter-Poached Radishes
This earthy salad is beautiful, topped with buttery radishes.
