The Peach Truck is having a much shorter season this year due to the warm winter. Just a couple more weeks, so stock up!

1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Kosher salt
Pepper
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Hello!

We’ve got lots of good stuff this week! All the best of the shifting season’s produce for you. Lots of lettuce available this week and just so you know it won’t be around much longer! As the warmer temperatures set in the lettuce quickly gets stressed and is no longer a good crop – so enjoy it while you can!

We’ve got some of the season’s first green beans and cucumbers, and looking ahead, we have tomatoes coming in soon, as well as locally sourced, organically grown blueberries and blackberries.

The Bloomy Rind is off this week but will return next week!

And please remember to bring us your bags when you pick up your order!

We will continue to have The Peach Truck set up next to us – although they say their season will be shorter this year. The peaches so far have been excellent!

Bear Creek Farm has a new item up – all beef cheddar /jalapeno hot dogs! These are sure to be a summer time, grill out staple!

Thank you so much for all your support!

See you Wednesday!

ROASTED SPRING SALAD WITH RADICCHIO
This is a spring salad of the best sort—hearty, bright, and filling enough that it can stand alone as a light meal .

For the salad:
1-2 fennel bulbs
1 bunch of carrots
a few beets
1 head of broccoli
1 head of raddichio
2 cloves of garlic
olive oil
salt

For the dressing:
half a lemon
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon honey
cracked pepper to taste

Directions

Scrub the beets and parboil them on the stove top in a heavy sauce pan until you can pierce them with a fork. Cool to handling temperature then remove the skins. Halve or quarter any large beets. While beets are simmering and cooling, prepare the fennel.
Preheat the oven to 375. Trim the fennel bulb and thinly slice on a mandolin from top to bottom, keeping the base intact. If you don’t have a mandolin, simply use a sharp knife and slice as thinly as you can through the whole bulb from top to bottom. Toss with olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet. Roast until beginning to turn golden brown, turn and roast for another minute or two. If your pieces are not an even thickness, they may not brown evenly. Not to worry, just remove them as they are done and allow the rest to finish cooking. Remove to a plate to cool.
Turn oven up to 400. Place beets, carrots, peeled garlic cloves, and broccoli florets evenly on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Roast until taking on some color and the broccoli is a touch crispy. The broccoli will be done first, so remove and continue roasting the rest, about 25-35 min. total. Turn the vegetables as needed to prevent burning.
While you let the vegetables cool a bit, coarsely chop the radicchio and place in a large serving bowl.
Make the dressing: combine all dressing ingredients in an empty jar, screw the lid on tight, and shake to emulsify. Transfer the vegetables on top of the bed of radicchio, arrange the fennel crisps on top, and drizzle on the dressing. Ta da!
