Ingredients:
¼ cup Meyer lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon kumquat juice
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 clove garlic, finely minced
2 teaspoon honey
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt to taste

Method:
1. Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Adjust seasoning to taste with salt.

Winter Greens Salad with Cara Cara Oranges, Almonds & House Citronette

A light, bright, and refreshing addition to any brunch lineup.

Ingredients:
4 large handfuls of salad greens, such as mix of this week’s Lacinato kale and red-veined sorrel greens, washed and torn or chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 cup coarsely-chopped radicchio
2 Cara Cara oranges, sliced into segments
⅓ cup goat cheese, crumbled
3 tablespoons sliced almonds
¼ cup pomegranate arils
F&L citronette
Fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. In a small skillet over medium heat, toast the almonds for a few minutes, stirring frequently so they don’t burn. Once the almonds are fragrant and starting to turn golden, remove from heat.

2. In a large serving bowl, combine the greens, radicchio, segmented blood oranges, goat cheese, pomegranate arils and warm almonds.

3. Just before serving, drizzle the salad with about ½ cup of the citronette, tossing lightly to combine. Add more dressing as desired, and season generously with fresh ground pepper.

Spring into Summer Recipes

This week’s box pays homage to the best spring ingredients—rainbow Swiss chard, ruby-red rhubarb and bright green garlic—all while looking forward to summer with colorful sweet pea blossoms and the first locally-grown strawberries of the season to enjoy with freshly-baked shortcakes and silky crème fraîche. In addition to this sweet sampling, other provisions in this bright lineup include: Jewish rye bread, fresh eggs from the henhouse and soft, spreadable sheep’s milk cheese from Harmony Fields, plus Meyer lemons and tender Little Gem lettuce greens.

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
