Summery Salads Recipes

As we approach the summer solstice next week, the gardens are bursting to life with vibrant produce and verdant greens indicative of the coming season. Thus, take in the summer splendor with a delivery that is chockablock with mix-and-match salad ingredients—from the likes of green Bibb lettuce, endive frisée, and a mix of microgreens to build on as a base, to faves such as fresh fava beans, red bunching onions, Meyer lemons, baby golden beets, and peppery nasturtium flowers to add on as you please. Also included: Farm-fresh eggs, Italian Rustica bread, dried plums, and vinaigrette-ready preserved lemons crafted in the farmstead kitchen; whether you’re celebrating Dads or grads this week, we hope you enjoy this plant-powered menu!
