Week 1 CSA Box: Beet Salad

Beet Salad

We received our first box of produce through our CSA and one item in the contents of the box really challenged my kitchen skills.

CSA Produce

After receiving it, I emptied everything out onto the table and was satisfied by the variety of vegetables.

The green were questionable since I didn’t know which green they were I asked you all on Facebook and everyone agreed they were kale.

I also had to ask you all on Facebook and Instagram what these were.

Beet Salad

I was thinking…

a) Turnips
b) Radishes
c) Beets
d) Rutabaga

You all supplied a variety of responses but the consensus was c) beets.

Many of you provided me with some delicious recipe ideas and I decided to use them in a salad.

Yes…they were just as messy to prepare as you all said.

This salad was really good. Beets don’t have much if a distinct flavor so they make a great way to get more vitamins in if you are not a fan of raw vegetables.
