Spring Sampling Recipes

Pour yourself a glass of wine, kick back on the couch and enjoy a sweet sampling of spring with this week’s lineup of antipasti-ready bites—think: Italian-style flatbreads kissed with Sicilian sea salt, our luscious herbed fromage blanc and homemade berry preserves, plus kitchen-ready produce that ranges from crisp French Breakfast radishes and Hakurei turnips to Cara Cara oranges and tart-sweet apples. Get ready to mix and match to your heart’s content with this box, which also includes multigrain bread, farm-fresh eggs and a beautiful bounty of spring greens. Cheers!
