Recipe Ideas - Summer Share 2015 (Week 2)

Welcome to Week 2 of the Summer Season!

Week 2 is all about the luscious greens that this abundant rain is providing us! We've got BEAUTIFUL arugula or tatsoi, lettuce or field greens, and some of the pretties escarole we've ever seen!

The escarole is on the right and the lettuce is on the left. The lettuce is slightly more curly at the end of the leaves and a bit lighter in color. To be sure, taste test! You'll find the escarole is bitter and is best enjoyed cooked - perfect for beans and greens. You won't want to confuse it for lettuce and throw it in a salad, your kids will never eat salad again!
