Creamy Basil Dressing

The basil is gorgeous and prolific and this may be my new favorite dressing.  There are definitely variations possible depending on your mood and ingredients on hand! We taste tested a few at farmer lunch and settled on a hybrid, which will be part of our Summer Farm Dinner!   Ingredients 1 cup packed fresh […]

Kale Salad

A few summers ago I really embraced Kale Salad.  I must admit I was a kale salad skeptic at one point, and I like kale.  But now, I am a full convert. Seems it might be time to start my Kale salad binging again.  Crisp, yet tender and it just feels like I must be […]

Spring Abundance

Caesar Salad Substitute

So…many of us love that crunch and creaminess of a Caesar Salad, so we love to shift around some ingredients to what we have in season.  This week – you can do it with either the versatile Tokyo Bekana or with some small Romaine heads.  And you can go for the true Caesar dressing, or this […]

Eat Your Greens…and Flowers!

  This week you can jazz up your salads with some beautiful, colorful and fragrant flowers.                 We had a great time harvesting some with Chef Lee Duberman for Ariel’s Restaurant Week Menu (Yep they are back from Mexico and OPEN!).  You can get them there as well as […]

Green, a popular color

This week, farm life, is brought to you by the color green. Granted we can’t really see any green in our outside fields yet…just the very first hint where the snow has melted.  And of course where the first chervil plants are poking up..it is that time of year! But we are flush with green […]

Tostada Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing

From Moosewood Daily Specials (more or less) When summer brings warm temps, we crave salad based meals and we think of our Cilantro Lime build your own mexican inspired salad. This is one of our favorites and it ends up a bit different every time depending on what is in season and in our pantry. And other dressings […]

Napa Cabbage Salad

Sometimes a Napa Cabbage can be a bit overwhelming…but just peel it down a bit and chop it up and it has the delightful crunch of romaine lettuce but some of that lovely Napa flavor.  This is a great cabbage raw or cooked…for this season consider this salad.  When my sister-in-law serves it there is […]

Kale Caesar Salad

Fall kale is the sweetest, post frost, but spring kale is the most tender.  We have even been just chopping the rib/stems up thin and adding them to our kale dishes, whether they are cooked or raw as a salad. Often, we do a vinaigrette with kale (lots of options here), but had a taste […]
