Lots of Leafy Greens

Here are the goods from this week's Rolling Prairie pickup (clockwise from lower left): Purple asparagus, kale, green leaf lettuce, spinach, turnips, radishes and salad mix.

I'm glad to get all of the salad greens, since tomorrow's dinner plan is for a huge entree salad. I was told the turnips are "salad" turnips which can be sliced and eaten raw. I'll probably end up cooking them instead and slicing the radishes onto the salad. I'll save the turnip greens and cook them next week. I don't think I've ever eaten kale, so I'll be looking for recipes soon.

Kale is great stir fried: wash it, remove the ribs (VERY important), and pop it into a HOT wok or skillet with a sliced onion. Stir for a minute or so and add 2 T rice vinegar, 2 T soy sauce, and 1/2 t. sugar. Stir for a couple of minutes until the kale is tender.

Gay: Thanks for the recipe. I think I'll try it this weekend!
